Oil vs. Water: Mixing not Fixing #NoDAPL

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!

The construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline disrupts the sacred environment and water supply of the Sioux Tribe of Standing Rock in Iowa. Spanning around 1,200 miles, the pipeline transfers almost 600,000 barrels of crude oil a day. In the past ten years, there has been over 1,500 oil spills in the United States, requiring billions of dollars in damage control. 

The pipeline was set for construction near the city of Bismarck, North Dakota, until it was deemed potentially harmful to the drinking water supply. Now situated one half of a mile from the Missouri River, the pipeline endangers the 8,000 members of the Sioux Tribe and subsequently 17 million downstream of the river.

Despite objections from the Sioux Tribe and failure of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to administer enrivonmental impact assessments properly, the pipeline continues to run. This is just another exampe of the hundreds of years of governmental oppression indigenous people have had to endure.

Help us end this injustice. Stop the Dakota Access Pipeline.
