You may not have heard about the “Dakota Access Pipeline,” but it’s the center of a controversy over land in the Dakotas. The Standing Rock Sioux have been protesting the light crude oil pipeline…they are worried that it will impact their water supply and disturb their sacred burial grounds. They believe once again the U.S. Government has violated a treaty. Hoping the courts will stop it At least…

Update on current protest ongoing against Dakota Access Pipeline in Standing Rock.

Word is going around that Dakota Access workers have unearthed remains. Chairman Archambault of the SRST just was arrested after human remains were found at excavation site. Natives warned them that this would happen while they chose to continue in violation of treaties/federal law. 
This is what Natives mean when we say Environmental violence is violence upon our bodies. The state sanctioned violence which allows oil to harm the people’s health, the violation of consent and police arrest of those protesting pipe line. The desecration of our relative’s remains (post mortem violence),, Invasion of Native land, resources, is also an attack upon our psyches and spirituality. The cycle of genocide continues.

Dakota Access Pipeline Standoff: Mni Wiconi, Water is Life. (x)

In the initial environmental assessment, the maps utilized by Dakota Access and the Army Corps did not indicate that SRST’s lands were close to the proposed Lake Oahe crossing. The company selected this route because the northern route “would be near and could jeopardize the drinking water of the residents in the city of Bismarck.” The Army Corps of Engineers has not issued a public response to the newly filed litigation or protest.

Ah okay - let’s protect the water for the people of Bismarck but fuck the thousands/millions of people, crops and livestock that rely on water from the Missouri river south of Bismarck.

‘We are protectors, not protesters’: why I’m fighting the North Dakota pipeline. (x)

The fact that Energy Transfer Partners, the company behind the pipeline, would use the word “Dakota”, which means “friend” or “ally”, in the name of its project is disrespectful. This pipeline is a direct threat to all Dakota, Lakota and Nakota people, especially our future generations. And we are not the only ones. We know that burning this oil is changing our climate and Indigenous people all over the world are bearing the brunt of the catastrophes that causes.

In July, the environmental group Earthjustice filed a lawsuit on behalf of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, seeking an injunction against the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which authorized the pipeline’s construction. “The construction and operation of the pipeline, as authorized by the Corps, threatens the Tribe’s environmental and economic well-being, and would damage and destroy sites of great historic, religious, and cultural significance to the tribe,” the lawsuit states.

Stop construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline which endangers the water supply to Native American reservations. (petition)
