People are very busy and this incident is getting virtually no corporate owned media coverage except for the non corporate Democracy Now done by Amy Goodman. Upload that app for free to follow this situation!
The Dakota Access Pipeline is a social justice event that is not only affecting the Standing Rock community but if the proposers private co. Pipeline is allowed to be put on the SR land and under the Missouri River and if it bursts or leaks will destroy the water source of that nation and the 15 million people or so downstream from it as well. Over 2,000 pipelines have had leaking or bursting problems so this is a real concern. The Water Protectors have gathered from over 200 Native American Nations at Standing Rock plus other supporters perhaps upwards of 7,000 now.
They are stewards of their land, the water and Mother Earth.
They are asking us all to wake up to the destruction the fossil fuel companies are exacting on the earth and all of her relations. No water, no life!
We have our own PennEast Pipeline battle here and many of us realize that what the Water Protectors are doing in ND is leading the way for people to push back against this greed for money at the expense of the health and welfare of the people and the planet.
