Nov 15 #NoDAPL Day of Action at Army Corps of Engineers
The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians andCherokee Nation have visited the Standing Rock Sioux encampment.
The water protectors have asked for people to help spread the word about
what’s happening there. Mainstream media coverage is inadequate.
They also want the public to know that people in the encampments are doing
everything in a spirit of prayer and ceremony. They are listening to the
elders for directions on every day’s actions.
The official tribal website has a link for donations.
The official website for the Sacred Stone camp, with suggestions for
action, is here: http://sacredstonecamp.org
This movement is unprecedented for American Indian people and for the
environment. Please help spread the word.
Call North Dakota governor Jack Dalrymple at 701-328-2200.
When leaving a message stating your support for the NoDAPL movement please be respectful and ask for peaceful resolution, and that respect be shown for the constitutional rights of those engaging in nonviolent direct actions involving civil disobedience. Remind him that the 1960s Civil Rightsmovement gained success through similar peaceful actions and was met with extreme local state repression and violence that is unacceptable in the 21st century. Ask him to recuse himself from the State Industrial Commission and avoid conflicts of interest in his service to the People of North Dakota and Big Oil. Ask him to visit the camps and share prayers and songs with our people, to listen to us as human beings who want only to protect our children and our future generations, and our water.
* Call the Morton County Sheriffs Department at 701-667-3330 to ask them
to demilitarize their tactics and protect ALL ND citizens and visitors. Request that they refrain from mass arrests, macing, clubbing, hooding, strip searching, and armed confrontation with UNARMED peaceful water protectors engaged in constitutionally protected civil disobedience. Ask them to inform their officers about treaty law, federal Indian law, and to provide training to their officers on sacred sites protections and the American Indian Religous Freedom Act of 1978.

*Call the White House at (202) 456-1111 or (202) 456-1414. Tell President Obama to deny the Army Corps of Engineers’ Permit for the Dakota Access Pipeline, and remind his administration of their commitment to combating Climate Change, and to implementing green/renewable nrg solutions — and that fracking and fracked oil are NOT clean nrg. Tell them that Bakken oil extraction pollutes our air and water and yields millions of gallons of radioactive water and waste that is destroying our region’s future in the name of nrg security — which is meaningless without water security in the arid Northern Plains.
