Water is Life – Mni Wiconi!
In one of the most historic, non-violent direct actions ever taken, thousands have united to protect the water of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and the rights to water for the whole world. The NoDAPL movement has united many indigenous tribes in a now-legendary gathering and demonstration of unity. We arguably haven't seen this type of great coming together in Modern America! Nothing will ever be the same after so many people have courageously and peacefully shown up for indigenous peoples and taken a stand against the radically unjust assaults to sacred land and to our collective inherent rights to clean water. This is a global movement growing every day and we need your courage and voice to sustain the sacrifices those at the frontline have made.
Those who have weathered the ice cold conditions, the torments and abuse of the police, and the daily struggle to spread their message that water is life, have fought hard and won (for now). With the recent pipeline spill only 150 miles away from the Oceti Sakowin Camp, united support, outreach, and action is needed now more than ever. The fight continues and what happens next will determine the fate of all of us. This is everyone's fight for access to resources to sustain life.
President Obama has only temporarily halted the Dakota Access Pipeline. There are many, many people still on the frontline on behalf of us all.
Let's support the continued fight by divesting in the very banks that are supplying DAPL with funds. We have already seen what an unforgiving, peaceful protest can do! The whole world is watching and we need you!
