NYC Stands with Standing Rock – Call for emergency actions after illegal DAPL approval
After the final DAPL permit was granted, the Indigenous Coalition at Standing Rock is calling for February 8th to be an international day of emergency actions to disrupt business as usual and unleash a global intersectional resistance to fossil fuels and fascism. In New York the #NoDAPL ! Emergency Protest Against Easement action was held at Thomas Paine Park (Foley Square)

Tuesday February 7, the US Army Corps of Engineers gave notice of intent to grant the final easement for the Dakota Access Pipeline to cross the Mni Sose (Missouri River).  They are skipping the EIS ordered in December, and skipping the congressional notification period required by law.  This is a response to President Trump’s Presidential Memorandum directing the US Army Corps of Engineers to expedite approval of the project.

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe will likely sue and ask for a temporary restraining order to halt construction while the legality of this decision is reviewed in court.  In the meantime, DAPL will likely start drilling immediately.  The media recently reported that DAPL says their best case scenario timeline is 83 days from easement to oil flow.

MESSAGING:  

* #RisewithStandingRock….against violations of sovereignty, crimes against Mother Earth, fascism, violation of law, etc.
* Unify the People
* DAPL is Violating Human Rights
* Normalize resistance / We Will Not Be Governed by Tyrants
* Support Tribes’ request for TRO (Temporary Restraining Order)/injunction!
* Continue to elevate what’s happening on the ground in ND — demonstrate that this is something serious that resonates to all peoples in the face of Trump administration tyranny.
* Resist Trump’s direct attack against indigenous communities with his executive orders re: DAPL & KXL
* Police violence seems inevitable and mass casualties are very likely.   The only way to keep people safe is to do the EIS.  If not, any blood spilled is on Trump’s hands and the hands of the Corps.
