The situation in North Dakota is being dramatically escalated by the Governor and the presence of militarized police from surrounding states. NOW is the time those of us who cannot be in North Dakota can do our part.
The Global Solidarity Campaign is asking you to help:
These are the ways to join the fight:
- Organize yourself and/or large groups of people from your community to come to Standing Rock. Contact us at Organizing@NoDAPLSolidarity.org to discuss details and schedule a time frame.
- TAKE ACTION IN YOUR OWN COMMUNITIES. Target the Army Corp of Engineers, banks, pipeline companies, corporations and elected officials behind the pipeline. Taking action includes lock-downs at offices, sit-ins, taking up space, rallies, call-in days, divesting from banks, mass mailings and interruptions.

Also note your local police department might be involved in North Dakota.
Although the Obama administration, and three Federal agencies have asked that construction on the Dakota Access pipeline be halted, construction continues. The Standing Rock Sioux have also asked for help from the United Nations, and received support there.
Water protectors in North Dakota affirmed in the 1851 Treaty of Ft. Laramie as sovereign land. under the control of the Oceti Sakowin, and established the Treaty Camp on what is designated as private property, along the route of the pipeline, in order to prevent construction continuing to the Missouri River. The Army Corps of Engineers has still not given permission for the construction of the pipeline under the river.
Now is the time to raise our voices in support of the water protectors, against the fossil fuel industry. The fate of future generations is what is at stake. It is up to each one of us.
