First Nation – Farmer Climate Unity March Introduction

Here is the promo video for the First Nation-Farmer Climate Unity March:

Landowners who had their property taken by force for the Dakota Access Pipeline have joined with the Iowa Sierra Club in a lawsuit against the Iowa Utilities Board (IUB). They allege that the IUB illegally allowed Energy Transfer Partners (ETP) to use eminent domain to build the Dakota Access Pipeline. Their case is strong and has potentially historic significance.

To raise awareness of the importance of this lawsuit, Bold Iowa and Indigenous Iowa are partnering with the Sierra Club Iowa Chapter and Seeding Sovereignty to organize an eight-day, 90-mile march. Fifty marchers will set out from the IUB’s headquarters in Des Moines on Saturday, September 1. They’ll follow the general route of the pipeline through Story, Boone and Webster counties and arrive in Fort Dodge on September 8 for an action at the conclusion of the March.  http://boldiowa.com/2018-first-nation-farmer-climate-unity-march/
