#NoDAPL Last Stand
On February 8, the US Army Corps granted the final easement for the Dakota Access Pipeline to cross the Mni Sose (Missouri River). They also terminated the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) ordered in December, and skipped the congressional notification period required by law. This was made possible by President Trump’s Presidential Memorandum directing the Corps to expedite approval of the project.
WORLDWIDE CALL TO ACTION
The Indigenous Coalition at Standing Rock is calling for international emergency actions to disrupt business as usual and unleash a global intersectional resistance to fossil fuels and fascism. Connect with other struggles. Think long-term movement building. We are in this for the long haul.
The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has consistently asked for people to go home, and we understand this. Regardless, water protectors remain on the ground at the Sacred Stone Camp, determined to stop the black snake, and we support them. If you go, expect police violence, mass arrests, felony charges for just about anything, abuse while in custody, targeted persecution and racial profiling while driving around the area, etc.
We are calling for emergency actions all over the world. PLEASE, THIS IS OUR LAST STAND. Please visit everydayofaction.org to find or register an action wherever you are. Check out our world action map to join the mass distributed actions.
Please also donate to the legal defense of water protectors who will be facing intensifying repression.
ACTION PLANNING TIPS
We encourage groups across the globe to connect our prayers for the water with other fights against fascism and the domination of people and Mother Earth (deportations, muslim ban, attacks on labor, deregulation of wall street, other fossil fuel projects, censorship of the press and academia, etc).
Choose the target that is most strategic for building long-term collaborative resistance in your local area. Potential targets may include: city halls, federal buildings, army corps offices, ICE detention centers, banks profiting off DAPL, sheriff's offices that have come to Standing Rock, labor union offices, sites of workplace struggle, etc.
Hundreds of thousands of us have signed petitions to the banks on the project loan for the Dakota Access Pipeline. Thousands more have closed their accounts and defunded over $50 million and counting. Now, it's time to make our voices heard, in person.
Take action at these 17 banks: Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi UFJ, BayernLB, BBVA, BNP Paribas, Citigroup, Crédit Agricole, DNB ASA, ICBC, ING, Intesa Sanpaolo, Mizuho Bank, Natixis, SMBC, Société Générale, SunTrust Robinson Humphrey, TD Bank, Wells Fargo. All you have to do is enter your zip code, pick a local bank branch and show up.
