The struggle at Standing Rock has reached a critical point and Indigenous water protectors need support and solidarity more than ever. For the last several months, thousands of activists, led by Standing Rock Sioux tribe and members of nearly 100 more tribes from across the U.S. and Canada, have confronted the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline(DAPL) at Standing Rock.

The pipeline, if completed, would carry over 500,000 barrels of crude per day from North Dakota through four states and under the Missouri River, directly adjacent to the Standing Rock Sioux Nation. DAPL is being bankrolled by a number of major conglomerates and banks, including Bank of America, HSBC, UBS, Goldman Sachs, Wells Fargo, JPMorgan Chase and Energy Transfer Partners. Energy Transfer Partners is owned by billionaire and GOP donor, Kelcy Warren. The $3.8 billion pipeline is a direct threat to native communities, fresh water and the climate.

Since the start of the conflict, over 140 indigenous water protectors and scores of others have been arrested for protesting the pipeline. Hundreds of National Guard soldiers, North Dakota State Police and police from neighboring states have violently attacked peaceful protestors.

No to Access Pipeline

Fair World Project (FWP) strongly opposes the Dakota Access Pipeline and all extractive projects that threaten Indigenous Peoples, undermine tribal sovereignty and destroy the environment.  FWP condemns the violent actions by the National Guard and police units and calls for an immediate halt to the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Take action:
Send a letter to President Obama and demand the immediate halt to the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Go further:
Call the White House at (202) 456-1111 and tell President Obama to send Justice Department observers immediately and stop the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Donate
Send donations to support people on the ground: here for Oceti Sakowin Camp; here for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe; and here for the legal collective.

Divest
Divest from the banks funding the pipeline and write a letter to your own bank if they’re on the list.

Join the fight
On November 15th, join a massive day of action in solidarity with those at Standing Rock, and demand the Federal government and the Army Corp reject this pipeline.

President Obama,

How can let this debacle continue? If a traditional cemetery with granite headstones were being dug up, you would stop it immediately. If you had to drink the polluted water that results from fracking, you would stop it. If you lived n a state where this activity triggers earthquakes you would stop it. Native Americans are the true original Americans. How can you allow them to be arrested, abused, attacked by police dogs and allow their sacred animals – Bison – be cruelly abused in the name of (false) progress. Are the oils companies’ bribes really worth it?
