NORMAN, OK (KSWO) – Today on the OU campus, more than one-hundred students gathered for a public event to show their support for the Standing Rock protestors.

Students stood in solidarity with tribal brothers and sisters who have been fighting, protecting, and defending for weeks at the Standing Rock Reservation for clean water and honored treaties.

They also stood in solidarity with the Stop the Plains All American - Red River Pipeline movement of Oklahoma. The Stop the Plains All American - Red River Pipeline movement has been working tirelessly for months to stop Plains All American from building a pipeline that will impact 11 tribal nations in Oklahoma.

Students say the 5.7 magnitude earthquake that rattled Pawnee motivated them to show their support.

    An elementary school teacher in Tulsa says her salary has left her so short on cash that she had to panhandle for classroom supplies. Teresa Danks has been an educator since 1996. She says that while it's never been a financially rewarding profession, lately is been getting even harder to get by. She makes around $35,000 a year, with about $3,000 being spent out of pocket for school supplies.
