What Standing Rock Gave the World

The spirit of resistance exemplified by Standing Rock can easily be found in the half-dozen or so other pipeline battles across the United States. Beyond that, the movement amplified the greater struggle worldwide: treaty rights, sacred sites, and the overall stand to protect Indigenous land and life.

In ‘Significant’ Win for Water Protectors, Judge Orders Review of DAPL Permits

In a 91-page ruling, U.S. District Judge James Boasberg declared that the Corps “did not adequately consider the impacts of an oil spill on fishing rights, hunting rights, or environmental justice, or the degree to which the pipeline’s effects are likely to be highly controversial.” Native American tribes and activists across the country deemed it a substantial win.

Following Trump’s “Utterly Alarming” DAPL Order Would Violate Law, Tribe Warns

Trump’s memorandum calls for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to reconsider conducting a full environmental assessment of the pipeline. The assessment is already underway after being ordered by President Barack Obama. Withdrawing from the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is “arbitrary and without justification,” Standing Rock Sioux chairman David Archambault III wrote. “[T]he law requires that changes in agency positions be backed by new circumstances or new evidence, not simply by the president’s whim.”

Tsunami of Outrage, Vows of Resistance Follow Trump’s Pipeline Order

“Trump clearly doesn’t know what he’s doing,” said 350.org executive director May Boeve. “Indigenous peoples, landowners, and climate activists did everything in our power to stop Keystone XL and Dakota Access, and we’ll do it again. These orders will only reignite the widespread grassroots opposition to these pipelines and other dirty energy projects. Trump is about to meet the fossil fuel resistance head on.”

Standing Rock Represents a Shift in American Consciousness

Standing Rock Represents a Shift in American Consciousness

The coming together of Water Protectors and the Veterans represents a cognitive shift in perspective. Our ancestral participation in the Manifest Destiny was but a prelude to WWI and WWII, Korea, and the Middle East. The prospect of war with Russia so zealously propagandized by candidate Clinton is still spuriously promoted by President Obama. American troops are being positioned to again serve the will of a false paradigm.

Oil Company Responds To US Army Corps’ Announcement, Will Continue To Proceed With Pipeline

On Sunday, the US Army Corps of Engineers denied an easement for the pipeline to cross Lake Oahe, meaning the DAPL would need to be rerouted. Shortly after that declaration, however, ETP and SXL released their own statement, making it very clear that the companies have no intention of delaying or stopping construction… A ‘victory’ might have been obtained yesterday, but the ‘fight’ is far from over.

Sioux Tribe Leaders Respond To Army Eviction Notice Of #NoDAPL Camp, Refuse To Give Up

Tribal leaders have now responded to what they termed the Corps’ “direct and irresponsible threat to the water protectors.” The Cheyenne River tribe, who are co-litigants in a lawsuit against the pipeline, sharply rebuked the plan, citing that the area on which the targeted camps lie are Sioux territory per the 1851 Fort Laramie treaty signed by the Sioux and the US federal government.

Millions Around the World Are Watching the Standing Rock Sioux’s Fight for Human Rights

The North Dakota Access Pipeline protests rage on. The latest comes today when a Dakota Access company resumed construction of its pipeline that is said to run under the Missouri River after requests from Army Corps were ignored to wait as they assess re-route options. The protesters call themselves water protectors. The Missouri is their main source of water and they are protecting the land, water, and air of ancient native burial grounds. Camps formed back in April and protests began in August.
