BACKGROUND ~ NoDAPL

Over the past few months thousands have gathered with the Standing Rock Lakota to protect water, land and life against the Dakota Access Fracked Oil Pipeline (DAPL) . In an unprecedented mass action of First Nations Peoples and their allies, folks have come from around the world to join in prayer and non-violent direct action to protect the Missouri River watershed, the Ogallala Aquifer, sacred sites and burial grounds that are being bulldozed by pipeline construction.  Now, facing militarized police repression and the oncoming winter months, the Water Protectors are calling on all of us for support.  Please help support this struggle for native rights and sovereignty, for the climate and for all who drink water, breathe air and live on this earth!!
Stand with Standing Rock!!

Other Ways To Help Out
FUNDRAISE 
Help spread the word, put on an event, walk door to door, and raise some cash to help support the ongoing efforts.  Money is needed for legal and logistical support

TAKE ACTION! There are ways we can take action locally to oppose the DAPL and to protect the land and water.  There is an event being planned for Sunday 11/6 at noon in downtown Montpelier, stay tuned. TD bank is a major financier of the DAPL, Michels Construction is one of the companies build the DAPL, they are also building the fracked gas pipeline in VT.  Actions that target these players and any others tied to DAPL are needed.  Divest from TD Bank, stop the VT Fracked Gas Pipeline, be creative and support local actions!
NOVEMBER 15th: NATIONAL CALL TO ACTION FROM INDIGENOUS ENVIRONMENTAL NETWORK. STAY TUNED.

Water Protectors have put out a call to action  urging all folks who are experienced in direct action to come to Standing Rock.  If you have experience working on rigorous outdoor projects and can deal with cold conditions and want to  consider coming out with the Builders Delegation please be in touch with us.
