Find out how much North Dakota has been paying for riot gear and weaponry to subdue the NoDAPL protests in Standing Rock by donating to my crowdfund! For a state that has ducked as many FOIA requests as ND, these would be some very interesting docs to get.
Backed by 1 person.
- 1 anonymous backer
$5.00 raised out of $316.25.
This crowdfund has ended.
