Native Americans and Allies to March on Washington, DC March 10th
Following orders from the Trump administration, the U.S. Department of the Army is preparing to green light the Dakota Access Pipeline.
The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe issued the following statement in response (emphasis ours):
“The drinking water of millions of Americans is now at risk.
We are a sovereign nation and we will fight to protect our water and sacred places from the brazen private interests trying to push this pipeline through to benefit a few wealthy Americans with financial ties to the Trump administration,” said Dave Archambault II, chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.
