GERMANY PHOTOS Indigenous Women, Water Protectors from Standing Rock, Inspire 

WECAN International's Indigenous Women's Delegation, Water Protectors from the camps at Standing Rock, inspired others in Germany, as they spoke out for divestment from Energy Transfer Partners, Dakota Access Pipeline, and fossil fuels. The delegation urged banks and financial institutions in Norway, Switzerland and Germany to divest for the good of future generations and the future of Mother Earth.

Der entschlossene Widerstand gegen die Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota, USA, prägte 2016 die Schlagzeilen der nationalen und internationalen Presse. Trotz der Genehmigung des Projekts im Februar 2017 ist der Kampf nicht vorbei. Denn mit der Line 3 Pipeline, der Keystone XL Pipeline oder der Trans Mountain Pipeline geht die Zerstörung des Landes und die Missachtung indigener Rechte weiter. Dabei gilt es insbesondere sich an die Geldgeber des Projekts zu wenden, d.h. Banken, Versicherungen und Investoren, um sie zum Ausstieg aus solchen Projekten zu bewegen.
Vom 10.-13.10.2017 war daher eine Delegation indigener Frauen nach Stationen in Oslo und Zürich in München zu Gast der Aktionsgruppe Indianer & Menschenrechte, um auch hier um Unterstützung zu werben.
Organisiert von Osprey Orielle Lake, Gründerin von WECAN gehörten zur Delegation LaDonna BraveBull Allard (Initiatorin des Widerstandcamps in Sacred Stone), Tara Houska (Anwältin für Indianerangelegenheiten und Campaignerin bei Honor the Earth), Michelle Cook (Mitglied des Anwaltskollektivs der Water Protectors in Standing Rock) und Jackie Fielder (Koordinatorin des Lakota People’s Law Projects).
Es war eine ereignisreiche Woche mit zahlreichen Terminen, u.a. mit der BayernLB, der Deutschen Bank, der Allianz, diversen Interviews (u.a. Radio Lora) und einer öffentlichen Veranstaltung.
We thank all the wonderful women for coming to Munich and for sharing her experiences with us.
WE STAND STRONG! WE STAND UP! WE STAND WITH STANDING ROCK!

The resistance to the Dakota access pipeline

The decisive opposition to the Dakota access pipeline in North Dakota, USA, coined the headlines of the national and international press in 2016. Despite the approval of the project in February 2017, the fight is not over. Because with the line 3 Pipeline, the Keystone XL pipeline or the Trans Mountain pipeline, the destruction of the country and the disregard of indigenous rights continues. In particular, it is important to address the funding of the project, i.e. banks, insurance companies and investors in order to get them out of such projects.
From 10 to 13.10.2017, a delegation of indigenous women to Oslo, Zurich and Munich was a guest of the Indian & human rights action group, in order to promote support here.
Organized by Osprey Auriel Lake, the founder of WECAN, the delegation was comprised of Ladonna Brave Bull Allard (Initiator of resistance camps in Sacred Stone), Tara Houska (Attorney for Indian and campaigner at Honor the Earth), Michelle Cook (member of the lawyer collective of water protectors in Standing Rock) and Jackie Fielder (Coordinator of the Lakota People's Law Projects).
It was a eventful week with numerous dates, including BayernLB, the Deutsche Bank, the alliance, various interviews (including radio Lora) and a public event.

We thank all the wonderful women for coming to Munich and for sharing her experiences with us.
WE STAND STRONG! WE STAND UP! WE STAND WITH STANDING ROCK!
