In the video, the man continues to drive forward, until screaming can be heard.
The protesters start screaming “There’s somebody under the car!”
The police who had been hounding the protesters for months were suddenly nowhere to be found.
The man in the truck then ignored the screams and continued to drive forward.
He then ran over another protester’s foot.
“Tweet this out!” the protester filming the incident yelled. “Let everybody know! That man just ran over a peaceful protector, two of them!”
“A concrete truck driver pulled a gun on water protectors while trying to ram his way thru a crowd!” Dallas Goldtooth, a well-known Native American campaign organizer for the Indigenous Environmental Network said.
“Our protectors were peacefully marching on a dirt road towards a DAPL operations base. And somehow WE are designated as the violent ones,” he added.
Goldtooth and other protesters explained that the man fired his gun into the air several times that were not caught on video.
