Bakken Pipeline Proposed RouteNew Action Alert from Ed Fallon and the Bold Iowa Team

Thanks again for signing the Bakken Pipeline Pledge of Resistance.

We are closing in on 1,000 signers! Many thanks to our partners at Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement and CREDO Action for helping to circulate the pledge.

This is incredible and unprecedented, and I thank you for choosing to be part of what could be a truly historic moment.

While it’s impossible to say exactly when or where direct action will occur, it could be soon — we just heard from allies in both Lee and Jefferson counties that construction on the Bakken pipeline has begun in Iowa.

We knew this was coming, and I’m not the least bit discouraged. Construction was initiated on other pipelines (Keystone, Constitution, Palmetto) and they were defeated. We can stop this! But it will involve all hands on deck.

We are currently organizing several actions for everyone who signed the Bakken Pipeline Pledge of Resistance. We will have details to share with you soon, but we need a little more information from you.

Click here to complete our short 3-question Next Steps survey, and confirm your pledge.

We have also assembled a Bakken Pledge “Next Steps” FAQ, which you will be directed to after you complete the survey.

One more thing: Native American youth are on a 1,500-mile relay run from North Dakota to Washington, D.C. to protest the pipeline. They’ll cross Iowa from July 19 – 25, and they invite people to run with them, meet them, share a meal with them, hear their stories. They also need to borrow a couple of vans.

For more information on the “Run For Our Water” visit the Oceti Sakowin Youth + Allies Facebook Page or contact Bobbi Jean Three Legs at or Joseph White Eyes at

There have been many critical moments in this fight to stop the Bakken Pipeline. This one may be the most critical yet, and I am honored to have you as an ally.

Thank you for standing with us.

    I received my law degree from the University of Iowa, although I never took the bar. I am currently a professor in California teaching Native American Studies. My friend Pbonchai Tallman is a Paiute Medicine Man. I am wondering if my legal knowledge/ experience (I worked for some time in poverty law) or his healing medicine might be of use in the fight. Please let me know–I could arrive the week before Thanksgiving and stay for two weeks, and perhaps the month of December.
