The map above shows the magnitude of what could be impacted when (not if) the oil pipeline burst.
Everything downstream of Standing Rock in the Missouri and the Mississippi Watersheds, as well as into the Gulf of Mexico would receive spilled oil. This is what the Water Protectors of Standing Rock are fighting to protect for the future generations of ALL LIFE. ALL OUR RELATIONS. WATER AS LIFE!
Thank you for your commitment to our Life Source Water. Time is Now.

TIME IS NOW FOR THE CHILDREN OF WATER, EARTH & SUN TO STAND UP IN LOVE
January 20, 2017
(from the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe website)
“Over 450,000 of you took action demanding Obama halt construction. Thank you!
Now we need your help finishing the fight.
On January 18th, the Department of the Army published the Notice of Intent to require an Environmental Impact Statement in the Federal Register. This is another small victory in defeating the proposed Dakota Access Pipeline. The fight, however, is still not over.
This notice opens the public scoping phase and invites anyone interested to help them to identify potential issues, concerns, and reasonable alternatives that should be considered in an EIS. While the EIS is exactly what we called for, we must ensure that it fully takes into consideration tribal treaty rights, natural resources, cultural and sacred places, socio-economical concerns, environmental justice, and the health and wellbeing of those downstream who rely on our drinking water.
We need your continued support as this process moves forward.
Department of the Army’s Civil Works will accept public comment up until Feb. 20th, 2017.”
- Support the Standing Rock Water Protectors wintering over in the camps with donating supplies;
- Request the Department of Justice to send observers to stand with the Water Protectors at Standing Rock to witness the injustices being inflicted.
- Express your concerns for the severe human right violations being inflicted upon the Standing Rock Tribe and the other Water Protectors, and the potential harm for All the Life within the Missouri/Mississippi Watersheds.
- Familiarize yourself with the Water issues at home and organize actions to protect our One Water in you own Watershed;
- Share your Love for Our One Living Water as Life.
