Jeden Tag wächst das Protestlager am Ufer des Cannonball River. Indianer aus allen Teilen Dakotas strömen herbei, um der Standing Rock Sioux Reservation zur Seite zu stehen Die nicht herbeieilen, geben öffentlich eine Solidaritätserklärung ab, wie die Indigene Bevölkerung aus Kanada und weltweit.

Der Bundesstaat North Dakota und der United States Army Corps of Engineers genehmigten die Ölleitung im Eiltempo, nachdem US-Präsident Barack Obama die Keystone-XL-Pipeline aus Kanada gestoppt hatte. Die Indianer klagen in dem Genehmigungsverfahren, einmal mehr übergangen worden zu sein.

Auch die Maori aus Neuseeland bekunden ihre Solidarität – machen auch Sie mit!

#NoDAPL resisters clashed with private security guards at a Dakota Access Pipeline construction site near Cannon Ball, North Dakota, on September 3, 2016. Photo by Dell HambletonIn a sign of solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, the Obama administration is supporting an emergency temporary restraining order against the $3.8 billion Dakota Access Pipeline.The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers hasn’t changed its position in the underlying lawsuit, which was filed by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. The agency still believes it fulfilled its duty to consult with the tribe about the impacts of the controversial pipeline on cultural and historic sites.However, since the matter remains of great public interest, the Obama administration believes a temporary restraining order is warranted against Dakota Access LLC, the Department of Justice said in a court filing on Monday. Construction near the #NoDAPL resistance camps has been the „subject of several recent confrontations,“ government attorneys wrote, including one on Saturday in which several people — a pregnant woman and a young girl among them — were injured in a clash with private security guards working for the pipeline partnership.“The Corps acknowledges that the public interest would be served by preserving peace near Lake Oahe until the court can render its well-considered opinion on plaintiff’s motion for preliminary injunction,“ government attorneys wrote in the short filing..“The Corps therefore does not oppose this short and discrete temporary restraining order.“In a footnote, the Obama administration also said the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe’s concerns about Dakota Access „engaging with or antagonizing“ the #NoDAPL resisters warranted a restraining order.“Although this matter is outside the scope of this lawsuit, the Corps would not oppose a temporary restraining order on this basis in the interest of public safety,“ the filing stated.The two tribes called for the temporary restraining order in response to the destruction of sacred sites and burial grounds in the path of the pipeline. They each filed their motions on Sunday, highlighting the emergency nature of their requests.“I do not believe that the timing of this construction was an accident or coincidence. Based on my observations, the nearest area of construction in the right of way west of Highway 1806 is around 20 miles away,“ Tim Mentz Sr., the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s former longtimehistoric preservation officer, stated in a sworn declaration on Sunday. „It appears that DAPL drove the bulldozers approximately 20 miles of uncleared right of way to access the precise area that we Surveyed and described in my declaration. The work started very early in the morning and they were accompanied by private security with dogs and with a helicopter overhead, indicating that the work was planned with care and that controversy was expected.“And even though Monday is federal holiday Judge James E. Boasberg issued an order to hear the tribes‘ motions. The hearing will take place at 3pm on Tuesday in Courtroom 19 of the federal courthouse in Washington D.C.The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe named the Army Corps as the defendant when the lawsuit was filed in late July. Dakota Access was allowed to join the case as a intervenor-defendant and the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe joined as an intervenor-plaintiff.Relevant Documents:

Stop the Dakota Access Pipeline


I’m 13 years-old and as an enrolled member of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, I’ve lived my whole life by the Missouri River. It runs by my home in Fort Yates North Dakota and my great grandparents original home was along the Missouri River in Cannon Ball. The river is a crucial part of our lives here on the Standing Rock Reservation.

But now a private oil company wants to build a pipeline that would cross the Missouri River less than a mile away from the Standing Rock Reservation and if we don’t stop it, it will poison our river and threaten the health of my community when it leaks.

My friends and I have played in the river since we were little; my great grandparents raised chickens and horses along it. When the pipeline leaks, it will wipe out plants and animals, ruin our drinking water, and poison the center of community life for the Standing Rock Sioux.

In Dakota/Lakota we say “mni Wiconi.” Water is life. Native American people know that water is the first medicine not just for us, but for all human beings living on this earth.

The proposed Dakota Access Pipeline would transport 570,000 barrels of crude oil per day, across four states. Oil companies keep telling us that this is perfectly safe, but we’ve learned that that’s a lie: from 2012-2013 alone, there were 300 oil pipeline breaks in the state of North Dakota.

With such a high chance that this pipeline will leak, I can only guess that the oil industry keeps pushing for it because they don’t care about our health and safety. It’s like they think our lives are more expendable than others’.

So we, the Standing Rock Youth, are taking a stand to be the voice for our community, for our great grandparents, and for Mother Earth. Join us, and sign to ask the Army Corps of Engineers to stop the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline.
