We must ensure that the human rights of everyone standing against the pipeline are protected.
Can you call the following agencies and demand that law enforcement stop violating the human rights of water protectors on Highway 1806 immediately?
You can say,“I stand with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and all water protectors opposed to the Dakota Access Pipeline. There is no room in a democracy to use water cannons, tear gas, or rubber bullets against peaceful, unarmed water protectors.”
We have just weeks until the company overseeing the North Dakota Access Pipeline, Energy Transfer Partners, plans to defy federal orders and begin drilling under the river.2 The White House must order the Army Corps of Engineers to deny the easement and stop this destruction, and the presence of the water protectors is more important than ever.
It is a difficult time for all of us, but people power, principled alliances, and prayer have brought us this far, and they can lead to protecting the river as we go into the next stages of threats to Mother Earth.
Together, we will stop the Dakota Access Pipeline.
