A week after a heavily militarized police force evicted the main #NoDAPL encampment, three Unicorn Riot journalists are set for trial facing criminal trespass charges stemming from our fall 2016 coverage of direct actions intended to stop the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL).
Chris Schiano and Niko Georgiades have trial dates of March 2nd and March 3rd in Morton County, North Dakota for criminal trespass. They were both arrested in a mass arrest on September 13th while reporting on a direct action which stopped pipeline work.
Jenn Schreiter has trial March 1st in Lee County, Iowa. They were arrested on October 12th while reporting on a Mississippi Stand action during which a water protector locked herself to DAPL construction equipment near Keokuk, Iowa.
In total, four Unicorn Riot journalists face criminal charges for our coverage.

These arrests took place while Obama ad-Dajjal and his minions ran the DOJ (sic).
And if you recall, this is what both political parties thought about freedom of speech during the last election campaign:
The only "free press" left in the US are the people who are NOT working for the huge corporations - and they are being relentlessly hounded and driven out of business.
Trump did not cause this, and it did not start with Obama ad-Dajjal, either. This is happening because corporations rule our crumbling nation, and they don't want you to think wrong thoughts.
