Niskithe Prayer Camp gathers as two members go on trial

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Members of the Niskithe Prayer Camp gathered outside the Lancaster County Courthouse on Monday.

It was a rally for the two members who were arrested in February while protesting at the location of a Lincoln housing development.

They were arrested on suspicion of not complying with police and blocking a public road.

The group prayed for understanding and a ruling in their favor.

And one of those on trial spoke.

“I hope that what comes from the trial today is that people are able to witness that our legal system is serving the interests of only one party, the developers, and that it’s not a legitimate system,” Wyatt Nelson said. “It’s not representing all of the people.”

No decision was made Monday. The trial is set to continue on June 9.
