Stand in Solidarity with the Standing
Rock Sioux Tribe
 

Cultural Survival stands in solidarity and action with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and the growing number of environmental protectors gathered in North Dakota to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) currently underway.

 

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and supporters around the world are awaiting a federal judge’s decision today on a temporary restraining order filed earlier this week to stop the destruction of the tribe’s sacred sites. Every day the Dakota Access Pipleline (DAPL) continues to build its access road, getting closer to the Missouri River. Thousands of people from all walks of life are gathered at the DAPL work site, conducting prayer and non-violent direct action to stop further damage and environmental degradation. 

 

Last Saturday, as the protectors faced off against massive bulldozers threatening tribal sacred burial sites, privately hired mercenary security guards attacked protectors with dogs and pepper spray as they resisted the pipeline’s construction. Six people, including a pregnant woman and a small child, were bitten by the security dogs. At least 30 people were reportedly pepper-sprayed.

 

Standing Rock Sioux Chairman David Archambault II in a statement said, “The pipeline threatens our sacred lands and the health of 17 million people who rely upon the Missouri River for water…There is a lot at stake with the court decision [today]… We call upon all water protectors to greet any decision with peace and order. Even if the outcome of the court’s ruling is not in our favor, we will continue to explore every lawful option and fight against the construction of the pipeline…Any act of violence hurts our cause and is not welcome here…We invite all supporters to join us in prayer that, ultimately, the right decision-the moral decision-is made to protect our people, our sacred places, our land and our resources.”
