[sudo-discuss] [URGENT] Networking & web geeks needed at Standing Rock

Hi all,

I've been working remotely with Lisha Sterling with Geeks Without
Bounds, Digital
Smoke Signals <https://www.facebook.com/DigitalSmokeSignals> and other orgs
comprising the Tech Warrior Camp on the ground at Standing Rock. They
completed their WiFi bridge to a nearby tribal-owned telecom on Saturday
and so the camp now has internet, but they could use support building out
an intranet mesh for ready access to Lakota educational materials, medical
and legal info, camp-to-camp communications, and media storage. Nodes will
be powered via a decentralized array of small solar / wind / bike power
modules. The intention is to build out permanent and sustainable
infrastructure at Standing Rock, to last well beyond the pipeline protest.

If you can make it out there to help, or contribute to their fund to
procure necessary equipmen <https://www.gofundme.com/waterissacred>t,
please do! If you're in the Bay and can donate equipment, in particular
OpenWRT-comptatible routers, bring them to Sudo Room ASAP and I will ensure
they make it into one of the trucks heading out there this week.

You can find more info on preparing for and being at Standing Rock,
including Lisha's signal #, here:

Email me privately for more details on the network buildout phasing,
current technical & environmental challenges, and line-of-site mapping.

Love and solidarity,

Help open a people-powered common space in Oakland, California!
