Stop the Dakota Access Pipeline
I’m 13 years-old and as an enrolled member of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, I’ve lived my whole life by the Missouri River. It runs by my home in Fort Yates North Dakota and my great grandparents original home was along the Missouri River in Cannon Ball. The river is a crucial part of our lives here on the Standing Rock Reservation. But now a private oil company wants to build a pipeline that would cross the Missouri River less than a mile away from the Standing Rock Reservation and if we don’t stop it, it will poison our river and threaten the health of my community when it leaks. My friends and I have played in the river since we were little; my great grandparents raised chickens and horses along it. When the pipeline leaks, it will wipe out plants and animals, ruin our drinking water, and poison the center of community life for the Standing Rock Sioux. In Dakota/Lakota we say “mni Wiconi.” Water is life. Native American people know that water is the first medicine not just for us, but for all human beings living on this earth. The proposed Dakota Access Pipeline would transport 570,000 barrels of crude oil per day, across four states. Oil companies keep telling us that this is perfectly safe, but we’ve learned that that’s a lie: from 2012-2013 alone, there were 300 oil pipeline breaks in the state of North Dakota. With such a high chance that this pipeline will leak, I can only guess that the oil industry keeps pushing for it because they don’t care about our health and safety. It’s like they think our lives are more expendable than others’. So we, the Standing Rock Youth, are taking a stand to be the voice for our community, for our great grandparents, and for Mother Earth. Join us, and sign to ask the Army Corps of Engineers to stop the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. Sincerely, Anna and the Standing Rock Youth Learn more about our campaign at rezpectourwater.com.

Feed Him or Free Him! Help Save This Defenseless Under-Weight Tiger
Hello!My name is Abbigale Guidry and I am an 18 year old oncoming freshman at University of Louisiana in Lafayette. When taking the interstate to our school, there is a truck station called Tiger Truck Shop and that is where a poor under weight tiger named Tony lives. If you would like to go to their website their link is www.tigertruckstop.comhttp://www.tigertruckstop.com On the website they are already asking people to sign a petition against the so called "activist busybodies" so that the time when Tony the tiger dies they can easily get a new one to replace him. It is as if they could care less about the tiger that they already have and care more about keeping the name of their gas station alive by always having a tiger. The tiger there should be more filled and at the healthy weight of a full grown tiger of 400 to 420 pounds. Tony on the other hand would have estimated to weighed in at about 280-300 pounds and you can tell by his hip bones sticking out. Also, might I add, the environment he is stationed at is right next to a noisy, congested interstate. A tiger should not have to live in such a bad environment such as he is in now. I hope that if you were to have the time, to help this defenseless and weak tiger. My mother once told me when I was little to be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire and nothing made my heart burn more passionately to help this animal then when I saw this powerless tiger barely able to stand to drink out of his water bowl. I want to change this tigers poor life because no animal should be caged on the side of an interstate in this type of state.I hope you have a blessed day. -Abbigale Guidry
Stop the Dakota Access Pipeline
The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has been locked in a legal battle to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline from impacting it’s cultural, water, and natural resources. The Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) is a 1,168-mile long crude oil pipeline that will transport nearly 570,000 barrels of oil each day from North Dakota to Illinois. The Army Corps of Engineers green-lighted several sections of the process without fully satisfying the National Historic Preservation Act, various environmental statutes, and its trust responsibility to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. The Dakota Access Pipeline not only affects the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and surrounding communities, it affects EVERY family in the United States as a whole."Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it." - George Santayana and Winston Churchill. This very moment, history is repeating itself with the Dakota Access Pipeline. When our ancestors came to the United States, they all did so with one thing in common: They desired freedom; freedom to live without intolerance and oppression. Right now our government is not only oppressing the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, it is disregarding the treaty it made with them concerning their land. How does this affect your family and every family in the United States? We created a governing system to protect ourselves, but how can we be free or protected if we can't trust that the laws we made will be upheld? I don't know about you, but I don't want a future where l have to live in fear because our word, our laws, and our sanctity means nothing. When we stand up for and protect the rights of others, we are also protecting our own rights and insuring that the government stays accountable and in check. I am calling everyone in this Great Nation to stand up for Our Integrity!Please do not allow the Army Corps to grant Dakota Access an easement - the Tribe's sacred land and resources must be protected!
