The fight to protect our water from dirty pipelines is far from over! This week, in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, we are asking you to submit a public comment to the Army Corps of Engineers to shut down the Dakota Access Pipeline. Right now, the Army Corps is preparing to accept public comments on the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL). Since this is a federal review process, everyone’s voice matters.
Add your name to shut down DAPL!
The illegal Dakota Access Pipeline fueled an Indigenous led movement to protect water in the Dakota regions, original homelands of the Oceti Sakowin or Great Sioux Nation and 1851 Fort Laramie Treaty territory. Despite monumental organizing and resistance, Energy Transfer continued construction; putting the Mni Sose, or Missouri River, and nearby waterways, ecosystems, and the climate in harm’s way. The developments violated international Free Prior and Informed Consent and prompted Standing Rock to file a lawsuit against the Army Corps. In this new phase of resistance, it’s imperative we keep the pressure on and declare Mni wičoni, Water is life!
Submit a comment to stop DAPL once and for all.
As frontline Indigenous leaders continue to show the way, we must remain steadfast in our support. No longer should water, health, and life be sacrificed for short term profits. The Biden administration must side with the people, not fossil fuel companies, and shut down DAPL and fossil fuel infrastructure once and for all. The fossil-free future is here, if we fight for it.
