Native American victory against oil fracking

A Haudenosaunee Women’s Dance in support of the Standing Rock Sioux.

On August 24, 2016, hundreds of supporters joined the Standing Rock Sioux as they pressed their suit against the U.S. Federal Gov’t/Army Corps of Engineers for allowing construction on the Dakota Access Pipeline across sacred land and in violation of the EPA. First Nations, Native American, and Indigenous groups from across North America joined to voice their support. So did non-Indigenous allies. The Haudenosaunee (also sometimes called Iroquois) showed their support through song and dance to declare that “water is life.”

A (provisional) victory for the Sioux today: Federal government moves to halt oil pipeline construction near Standing Rock Sioux tribal land: here.

PROTESTS CONTINUE IN NORTH DAKOTA “Thousands of Americans continued to protest in North Dakota Saturday to demand the federal government stop the construction of an oil pipeline near Native American land. The Department of Justice is currently reviewing the case after a federal judge denied the tribe’s request to stop construction on Friday.” [Nina Golgowski, HuffPost]

In a sudden and unexpected action Friday, three major agencies of the US federal government, the Army Corps of Engineers, the Department of Justice and the Department of the Interior announced a temporary halt in pipeline construction near the Standing Rock Sioux reservation in North Dakota: here.

    US GREEN Party presidential candidate Jill Stein confirmed yesterday that she’ll appear in court over her role in a protest against a new oil pipeline.

    Ms Stein acknowledged that she spray-painted construction equipment in North Dakota on Tuesday in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux, who say a planned $3.8 billion (£2.9bn) pipeline to take oil from North Dakota to Illinois will poison drinking water and threaten sites sacred to their tribe.

    Huge protests against the pipeline were held across the week in three states, with demos in Omaha, Nebraska, Tulsa in Oklahoma and Denver, Colorado, taking place on Thursday.

    The Yankton Sioux have sued federal regulators for approving the pipeline, filing lawsuits against the US Army Corps of Engineers and the US Fish and Wildlife Service on the grounds that the route passes through the tribe’s treaty lands and will “destroy sites of enormous cultural importance.”
