Tucson: Stand in Solidarity with Those at Standing Rock




“Are you ready to do your part to fight the Dakota Access Pipeline and stand in solidarity with the brave protectors on the front lines? Tuesday, Nov. 15 will be a national day of action, and we need you with us.

In Tucson, join Center staff and allies at 5 p.m. at 407 W. Congress 407 in downtown Tucson — outside of John McCain’s office.

This fight has reached a critical turning point. The U.S. Army Corps fast-tracked the Dakota Access Pipeline without proper consultation, and as a result, bulldozers are approaching Standing Rock as we speak. But with coordinated, massive demonstrations across the country, we’ll make it clear that this powerful movement will not allow the Obama administration or the incoming president to sacrifice indigenous rights, sacred places, our water or our climate — they must reject this pipeline.

Bring homemade signs and noise makers and be prepared to make your voice heard.

This is one of the most courageous stands against a fossil fuel project this country has ever seen. Together our movements stopped the Keystone XL pipeline almost a year ago; now an even bigger movement is rising up to stop Dakota Access — and the building of all new fossil fuel infrastructure.

Every voice is needed in this fight — including yours. Please let us know you’ll be there Nov. 15.”
