Madison, December 2: Stand With Standing Rock–Evict Dakota Access!

December is a Global Month of Action in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in their fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline. We need to act quickly to stop more violence against water protectors and halt the pipeline before January 1. On Friday, December 2 starting at 4 p.m., we will take our message to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers offices on D’onofrio Drive (near West Towne Mall).

The Army Corps has issued an “eviction notice” for everyone camped on stolen 1851 treaty lands it claims federal jurisdiction over, effective Monday, December 5. The Governor of North Dakota followed up the notice with an absurd “mandatory evacuation order” that threatens to levy fines and block emergency services from the camps, while militarized police continue to attack and injure water protectors. We must tell the Army Corps to immediately rescind their eviction notice that puts the thousands of people who will be at the camp on Monday in danger of life and limb. We will make ourselve visible and audible outside the building as the workday ends.
