Standing Rock Solidarity Rally and March

The Camp of the Sacred Stones and the Red Warrior Camp have called for #NoDAPL Global Weeks of Action which will run from September 3-17th.
Over two thousand Indigenous land defenders and allies are currently camped out on the Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota, physically blocking the route for the Dakota Access Pipeline, with the intention of protecting their land and water sources for generations to come and the immediate 18 million people who currently depend on the river as a primary water resource.
The pipeline threatens sacred sites including burial and ceremonial grounds, as well as water aquifers for the Standing Rock Community, and the waters of the people downstream. The Pipeline (DAPL) is a $3.8B, 1,100 mile fracked-oil pipeline currently under construction from the Bakken shale fields of North Dakota to Peoria, Illinois. DAPL is slated to cross Lakota Treaty Territory at the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation where it would be laid underneath the Missouri River, the longest river on the continent.
TD Bank is one of the funders of the Dakota Access Pipeline. We are demanding that these banks and lenders to cut off all line of credit to the pipeline companies and to stop funding the DAPL.
The Camp of the Sacred Stones was established on April 1 2016 at the edge of the Missouri and Cannonball Rivers on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation to resist the Dakota Access oil pipeline. The Red Warrior Camp was established in partnership with the Sacred Stone Camp to help guide the direct action resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline.
