New footage has emerged that shows members of the pipeline protesters training in what appears to be the beginning ‘learning’ stages of martial arts at their camp today.
In the video below, you can see several dozen protesters performing karate training rituals. Several eyewitnesses on the scene claimed they were being trained by a member of the Black Panthers Cubs was instructing conditioning and hand to hand combat in that martial arts video.
The protesters have claimed that they have not been using violence at all during their efforts to stop the construction of a major pipeline in the area. However, many people on the ground speculated as to what the point of martial arts training was for, or what message it was sending to those at the site.
