Camp of Sacred Stones: Resistance on the Water Sat., Aug. 20, 2016

ALL BOATS ON DECK!!!!   The Camp of the Sacred Stones calls ALL canoeists, kayaktivists, paddlers, and water warriors to bring their boats and courage and join us on the Missouri River on Saturday, August 20th.  Resistance to the Dakota Access pipeline is blossoming and hundreds are coming from all 4 directions to stand with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe to defend the land and water.  Please stand with us on the front lines!   This pipeline threatens the longest river on Turtle Island and the drinking water of many millions of people.   

Please come to camp a day or two early to prepare, and be ready to camp.   Bring boats, paddles, life jackets, banners, prayers, and open minds and hearts.   The company is pushing construction of the pipeline aggressively, despite pending lawsuits filed by multiple Dakota and Lakota tribes.   Permits were rubber stamped in violation of federal laws and treaties, without any tribal consultation or meaningful environmental review.   It's up to the people to stop construction until the lawsuits can be heard.
