VICTORY at #StandingRock! Now we un-fund DAPL.
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
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!

supporters, and allies! Join us for TWO peaceful bank actions at the
