The fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) at Standing Rock continues. Each day the pipeline continues to operate, it violates Indigenous sovereignty and treaty rights and poses a constant threat to crucial water sources for the Standing Rock Sioux and Cheyenne River Sioux Tribes.
The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe rejects the recently released draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The current EIS does not adequately consider the risks the pipeline poses to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and its water and cultural resources, in violation of the principles of the National Environmental Policy Act.
Submit your public comment to the Army Corps of Engineers and join the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in demanding a new, unbiased Environmental Impact Statement that adequately assesses the environmental impact of the Dakota Access Pipeline. The deadline for comments is December 13th!
