Petition update

We’re being sued – help us fight it

Aug 17, 2016 — Things are escalating quickly, and we couldn’t be more grateful for your help. Over the past few days several more tribal members have been arrested, including Standing Rock Chairman David Archambault II. In retaliation, Dakota Access LLC has sued the chairman, specifically to stop us from interfering with the pipeline’s construction.

Dakota Access knows that our tribe has very little funds to fight their lawyers, and yet they attacked us for disrupting a project that threatens our health and community. This is sick – but we can’t take it lying down. Last time we asked you to make a call for us, you all showed up! Will you help us again?

Call the Energy Transfer Partners Headquarters at (214) 981-0700 and tell them:

“If built, the Dakota Access Pipeline will threaten the health and safety of all those living along its path, and particularly members of the Standing Rock Reservation. We know from the long history of impunity oil companies have enjoyed when it comes to pipeline leaks that it is not a matter of IF this pipeline leaks, but WHEN. I’m calling to demand that you drop the lawsuit you have filed against the chairman of Standing Rock and cease pipeline construction immediately.”

Don’t forget to leave a comment to let us know how it goes!

Sincerely,

Bobbi and Anna
