Pipe is already in the ground and the company is preparing to drill a tunnel 92 feet below the bed of the Missouri River, over a mile in length, to install the Dakota Access pipeline. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has filed a lawsuit and a request for a Temporary Restraining Order against the company after an illegal federal permitting process…but the courts have not filed the paperwork yet, and are allowing construction to begin. This must be stopped.
The Sacred Stone Camp was established April 1, 2016 as a center of spiritual and cultural opposition to the Dakota Access pipeline, and is determined to stop construction through prayer and nonviolent direct action until adequate tribal consultation and environmental review are conducted. The spirit camp is located in between the pipeline’s proposed crossing of the Missouri River and the water intake valves for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, just over a mile downstream. The camp has an active facebook page and a crowdfunding page for general operating costs, but urgently needs separate legal defense funds to support the warriors resisting active construction. Funds raised on this page will only be used for the legal support for those involved in direct action.
