Report from Standing Rock/ DAPL Pipeline: Peace and Prayer for Humanity

Members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, other Native American Tribes, and non-Native allies gathered in the thousands in North Dakota to prevent the building of an oil pipeline under the Missouri River by the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) company, threatening the water source for 18 million people.  The “Water-Protectors” succeeded in halting the construction a few weeks ago, pending environmental assessments. But now Donald Trump has directed the Army Corps of Engineers to immediately approve the final step of the pipeline.

In the freezing cold, Native tribes are putting their bodies on the line and resisting this injustice by Trump. Thousands are joining them, including our own community members. Together, they will be facing highly militarized forces. We must show equal fortitude!

Join us on February 16 to Plan Support for the Resistance!
