On Thursday night from 7:30-9:30 p.m. at Topos Bookstore, 788 Woodward Avenue, Ridgewood, members of the local group Woodbine will present on their recent trip to Standing Rock, North Dakota, where various Native American tribes and open space advocates are opposing the construction of a gas pipeline.

The Facebook event says the group will give background and context for what’s happening there, as well as share their first-hand experiences.

We will show photos and videos, discuss the recent actions taken to block the ongoing construction of the pipeline, and go over the day-to-day organization and functioning of the various camps in and around Standing Rock, including Red Warrior, Rosebud, Sacred Stone, and Sacred Ground. We will also discuss further opportunities to support the occupation.

For more information, visit the event on Facebook.
