Mahatma Gandhi’s Grandson Arun Gandhi Makes Statement on Standing Rock


“President John F Kennedy once said: When peaceful revolution is made impossible, violent revolution will become inevitable. The tragedy of Standing Rock will go down in history as overkill. When a government disrespects its own treaties and crushes the spirit of the Native Americans that government cannot expect patriotism from the people. A peaceful negotiated settlement can be possible if the government stops resorting to an iron fist to resolve all disputes. We can only hope that good sense will prevail in the end.”

— Arun Gandhi
