URGENT: Act to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline
An urgent situation is unfolding across the border in the US.
Following a directive from Donald Trump, the US Army Corps of Engineers is about to grant the final permit needed to complete the Dakota Access Pipeline. The time to act is NOW.
The rights of the Standing Rock Sioux and all the water protectors, who have been resisting this pipeline for months, are being trampled. The US government is placing corporate profit over Indigenous sovereignty, and oil over water. Construction on the pipeline could begin again as soon as tomorrow — and major banks are backing the project.
The Dakota Access Pipeline can still be stopped — but we have to double down on our solidarity and cut off the flow of money to the project.
Indigenous water protectors at Standing Rock have shown us that uncompromising resistance gets results. While they do their part from the ground to protect sacred lands and clean water, you can do yours by putting pressure on Citibank.http://act.gp/nodapl
As we stand with First Nations in Canada to fight pipelines, let’s also stand with Tribes south of the border and keep fossil fuels in the ground.
We must resist.
We don't accept any money from companies or governments so we can be independent and challenge anyone who threatens the planet or peace. To help us keep fighting climate change, defending our oceans and protecting ancient forests, please make a donation. Thank you!
