Bay Area Stands with Standing Rock

Tuesday, January 31, 2017: This is the date by which Energy Transfer Partners & the Justice Department must file motions in the federal case brought by Energy Transfer Partners to approve the project.

Friday, December 9, 2016: A federal judge denied a request by Energy Transfer Partners, the company building the pipeline, to quickly force the federal government to approve the final stage of the project, but he said he would take up the issue in the new year. Energy Transfer Partners & the Justice Department have a January 31st deadline to file motions in the case.

Sunday, December 4, 2016: The US Army Corps of Engineers officially demanded an EIS (Environmental Impact Statement) and further review before allowing the part of the route under the Missouri River, effectively stopping further legal construction for that part. This is a huge victory! But Energy Transfer Partners is saying now they will not stop so the fight is not over. Continue to support this action.

There are a variety of ways that you can support Standing Rock & the struggle to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline:

1) Call the US Army Corps of Engineers

Regulatory (permits) 202 761-5903    Environmental  202 761-7690   Executive Office  202 761-0001  Legal 202 761-0018

Write with the email form in the link above, or call one of the depts. above and thank them for their decision to deny the easement and permit pending further review with an EIS and looking at issues related to Native American sovereignty. The eventual oil spills (guaranteed) will create havoc for the environment around and the oil is for export and the profit of corporations, not for the US.

2) Call the White House or tweet at President Barack Obama and say  Thank You for respecting the Native American rights and for having the US Army Corps of Engineers demand an EIS before further construction.  You might ask that this be enforced.
Call in number : 1-202-456-1111
3) Donate to the legal defense and support funds:

Oceti Sakowin Camp:

Standing Rock Sioux Tribe:

Sacred Stone Camp:

International Indigenous Youth Council:

Honor the Earth:

IEN / Indigenous Rising Media:

4) Spread the word through email & Facebook.

5) Sign petitions:

       Credo Action petition: Sign To End The Dakota Pipeline News Blackout! Sign to Tell Obama To Stop The Dakota Pipeline. Support No Dakaota Access Pipeline Amendment Now! Sign to Ban Dangerous Oil Pipelines!

6) Organize yourself &/or large groups of people from your community to to to Standing Rock. Contact to discuss details & schedule a time frame.

8) Additionally you can contact these agencies:

  • Morton County Sheriff 701-667-3330.  You can complain about their provocative actions towards the protectors and ask that they respect decision by the federal gov't for review and EIS.
  • Energy Transfer Partners Dallas Office 214-981-0700. Ask to be transferred to their North Dakota office and leave a message that by speeding up the building to 7 day a week and long hour work as well as their hiring of security forces with attack dogs and unprovoked use of pepper spray and demanding arrests of reporters, and now trying ignore the federal gov't's decision for an EIS is energizing a nation against their project. They need to work within the framework of the law and respect the decision of the US Army Corps of Engineers on Dec. 4th.
  • White House email Thank the President for recognizing the importance of Native American sovereign rights and for their views to be considered as well as demanding an EIS before going forward under the Missouri River.
  • Dept. of Justice   202 514-2000  Ask for "Tribal Justice" You could use the comment line or write an email. Express concern that there are arrests of reporters on public land.  Or you could say that these are people from "sovereign nations" peacefully standing for their rights under treaties. We hope that with the decision by the US Army Corps of Engineers to have construction of the Pipeline halted on 12/4, that this will be enforced.
  • Allen Koppy Morton County States Attorney 701-667-3350. Arresting reporters on public land is illegal and they need to get the Sheriff Dept to stop by filing charges against them. With the new ruling on Dec. 4th that the Pipeline must be stopped for further review and an EIS, demand that they respect this ruling and direct the Sheriff's Dept. and security to respect and protect the Water Protectors.
  • local NBC-affiliate TV station in Bismarck, ND. You can often write comments after a story. These are DAPL stories.
  • The Bismarck Tribune, the daily newspaper in Bismarck,
