Statement from President Brewer: "Yes, I was arrested but the real focus needs to be on the effects of alcohol on our people, on our families, and on our reservation. With this pending referendum vote on the legalization of alcohol, we as Oglalas need to take a hard look at what alcohol has done and is doing to our community," Brewer said in the statement to Native Sun News that was posted on Facebook. "We need to really think about what our communities will be like if alcohol is legalized on this reservation.The arrest does not deter me from continuing protesting in Whiteclay, why should I stop?" Brewer added. "Alcohol doesn't stop! My arrest only helps bring to light these issues and helps all of us Oglalas to begin talking about the referendum vote, effects of alcohol and what we really want for our people."
