The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and millions of people around the world are taking a strong stand against the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL), a 1,134 mile long oil pipeline starting from the Bakken Oil Fields in North Dakota and ending up in refineries in Patoka, Illinois. It is proposed to transport over 570,000 barrels per day.
Propeller and The Make Yourself Foundation have organized this campaign to provide you with a source to stay informed and simple actions you can take to say #NoDAPL from wherever you are. Check back regularly for news and updates on DAPL and rewards you can earn for your support.
To date, more than 300 tribes and first nations officially stand with Standing Rock by way of tribal resolutions, letters of support, or tribal delegations joining the camp. There are entire cities and municipalities such as Santa Barbara, Seattle, and Minneapolis/St. Paul supporting Standing Rock, and they aren't the only ones. There are millions of people the world over standing in solidarity as well. 80,000 people in Ireland rallied recently to say #NoDAPL. The local, global, national, and tribal communities all support the fight and we've got more coming in every day. We're also receiving an outcry of support from our allies, friends, and relations who aren't able to come to North Dakota but want to provide for, look after, and contribute to the cause up here.
Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has been providing a multitude of support services for the thousands of people resisting DAPL as the encampments grow and grow with each day. Donations provide suppport to the camps by way of:
Please consider supporting Standing Rock Sioux Tribe as they support the #NoDAPL water protectors who have come from so far away. We need your help however you can give it.
Dakota Access Pipeline would contribute to 50 million tonnes CO2 per year. This is the equivalent of 10 million cars or 15 coal plants. Every one of those tonnes of CO2 is a threat to all people on the planet. We can't all breathe poison air.
The pipeline is a huge risk to prairie, farm lands and critical waterways as well, including the Missouri River. It is a massive pipeline that would transport crude oil. News report after news report continues to come out about oil spills across the continent. It's never a matter of if the pipelines will leak and/or burst, it's a matter of when. Energy Transfer Partners, the owner of Dakota Access LLC, is already responsible for over $9 million in property damage stemming from their dirty operations. Thousands of gallons have already been spilled. We don’t want to be the next statistic and we don’t want our children’s futures at risk.
