This is a track featuring the vocal talents of the wonderful Susie Ro, in honour of the Water Protectors at Standing Rock, Dakota who were bravely opposing the building of a massive oil pipeline through sacred treaty land, threatening the drinking water of thousands of people. They were protesting nonviolently in the fact of freezing temperatures and brutal abuse from those defending profits instead of the Earth and welfare of the people.
It was released as part of a fantastic benefit compilation, the profits of which all went to the cause. You can still buy the album here:
May environmental and ethical responsibility return to America, may the native peoples and treaty rights be honoured, may the earth be protected and may the waters run clear and pure for the benefit of all beings.
