WHY THE DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE SUCKS AND WHAT YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT

AN OIL PIPELINE IS GOING TO POISON AN ENTIRE COMMUNITY:

A huge company is building an oil pipeline through the Missouri River. It’ll transport the dirtiest oil right through some of the cleanest water in the US. If there is a crack, leak, spill, any breakage, (which is super common) that oil will seep into the water and that water will become toxic.

The company that owns Sunoco just got their permit approved (btw Rick Perry is on their board of directors, in case that gives anyone else the fucking creeps). In response, a bunch of kids from Standing Rock Reservation physically ran across the country (1800 miles) in protest, carrying a petition w/ over 140,000 signatures, and met with the white house. NOW these kids, members of indigenous tribes around the nation, and their allies, are standing in front of massive equipment, using their bodies to stop construction and putting their lives on the line to protect this water.

WHY IT MATTERS:

When that water gets contaminated by oil, it will be poisoned, essentially deadly, within the hour. It’ll effect anyone in any community along the river or connecting rivers in North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, and Illinois. More people than we can fathom will lose access to clean water, and it’ll happen quickly. These kids are fighting for our access to clean water, too.

What happened in Flint could have been avoided if we had known about it. This time we have a shot.

Standing in solidarity with Standing Rock and the struggle to stop the building of the Dakota Access Pipeline. 

The DAPL is a proposed crude pipeline which crosses treaty territories, threatening the Missouri River, impacting immediately Cannonball, North Dakota of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. We have created this poster to amplify the message of the water protectors and land defenders. We are selling a limited number of posters so we can fundraise resources to buy more paper and ink to produce more posters for distribution in the Bay Area as well as sending hundreds of posters out to Standing Rock.

Please prioritize sending financial support the Sacred Stone Camp from the Standing Sioux Tribe. You can donate to the camp fund at https://www.gofundme.com/sacredstonecamp 

There is also a legal fund they are asking for donations for https://fundrazr.com/d19fAf

“I think that being a little more mysterious works better, and it lasts longer. You should be very careful that you don’t build everything you have around how cute you are or how sexy you are, because, unfortunately, no matter how cute you are or how sexy you are, in fifteen years, that won’t be the most important part of your music. I knew that in my twenties. And I prepared for that.”
