Bakken Pipeline Fight Is Still On

BakkenPledge_v2_600pxThis week’s action alert from Bold Iowa and CCI:

After Tuesday’s #NoDAPL Solidarity Nationwide Day of Action saw thousands turn out in over 100 cities to support Pipeline Fighters and Water Protectors, we’re seeing the movement to stop the Dakota Access pipeline spread like a prairie fire.

On Thursday and Friday, the 47 brave citizens who have already been arrested in acts of nonviolent civil disobedience to stop the pipeline in Iowa had their respective days in court, and we were there to stand with them in support and solidarity.

The more than 2,400 signers of the Bakken Pipeline Pledge of Resistance are now called to join us again on Thursday, Sept. 22 for a Midwest Mobilization at the Boone County Fairgrounds.

Our Bakken Pledge co-organizers at Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement (ICCI) are spearheading this day of action that will include speakers, a nonviolence training, a simultaneous Just Transition teach-in, a session featuring landowners’ perspective on the pipeline, and cap off with a nonviolent direct action to stop construction of the Dakota Access pipeline.

We’ll be sending an email update next week with additional details about Midwest Mobilization on Sept. 22.

UPCOMING EVENTS:

Thanks for standing with us.
