***DAILY DO’S – WEDNESDAY 6PM EDITION*** Mary Park
Today has been a worrisome and sad day at Standing Rock. #nodapl
Militarized police have been surrounding Oceti Sakowin Camp most of the day. Information is coming in batches, but from what we can learn at the moment, it seems they've delayed forcible removals and raids until tomorrow morning. It seems that some people have been able to get out, and there are reports of at least 7 arrests, including of people from independent media.
Here's how you can help from Washington state, from the words of Chase Iron Eyes:
"From the beginning, we knew this day would come. The water protectors stood bravely. Though our brothers and sisters are now being removed from treaty lands, I am here to tell you this fight is not over.
I must express my gratitude for all you have done to stand with us so far in our battle against the Dakota Access pipeline. Your involvement has helped carry us. You have made this enduring fight possible. Now, the battleground has shifted to the legal courts and the court of public opinion.
Please consider donating to our public education and advocacy fund so that we can continue to mobilize the hearts and minds of the world to our side."
#Give5: donate to the Lakota People's Law Project:
Pipeline construction isn’t limited to North Dakota. It’s going on right here, right now. Mark your calendars now for Monday’s pipeline resistance event, kicking off two campaigns on pipeline infrastructure in our own state. First, a campaign to fundraise for tribal nations' legal efforts against Kinder Morgan; second, a campaign to stop a potential pipeline proposal, Sumas Express, which will double our natural gas capacity and come down the I-5 corridor, right in our back yard!
WHO: Sierra Club, 350 Seattle and Washington Physicians for Social Responsibility.
WHAT: Campaign launch
WHEN: Monday, February 27th from 6:30 to 8:00
WHERE: Washington Hall: 153 14th Ave, Seattle WA
And, tweet/post to news organizations and demand that they cover what is happening at Standing Rock. #EyesOnStandingRock
