Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate for President of the United States has appeared on the site of the peaceful demonstrations at Standing Rock, North Dakota and garnered media attention when she spray-painted the words “I approve this message” on a bulldozer “that had been tagged with other messages of protest and that had been used to destroy sacred burial sites of the Standing Rock Sioux.”

A large contingent of Michigan Stein supporters will join the upcoming event in Lansing. The group Anonymous plans a march to the Capitol, starting at 8:00 am, as a part of the “Million Masks March” nationwide action.
