Tribes Push Back Against Yet Another Threat to Clean Water
Corina Roberts writes: The Standing Rock Sioux Nation is calling out to all indigenous nations of the world to stand in solidarity with them as they fight yet another pipeline on tribal lands. Some 250 supporters are camped along the reservation border, tribal youth have completed a run to Washington with petitions against the pipeline, and the battle against Bakken Oil has drawn the attention of environmental groups, tribal people and individuals from across the country. In California, the Winnemem Wintu, Yurok, and Klamath Tribes issued letters of support for the Standing Rock Protectors, and a demonstration of solidarity took place in San Francisco on August 24.

Still, one of the hardest parts of this battle is getting the world out. Local news sources and independent media have covered the story since roughly February, but to date, it has escaped the attention of major news coverage. That's the problem with being peaceful. It's hard to get big media attention without some sort of casualty and drama.

On July 27, the Standing Rock Sioux Nation, represented by Earthjustice, filed a lawsuit against the US Army Corps of Engineers for violating the National Historic Preservation Act as well as other laws. The Corps issued the final permits for the construction of a large crude oil pipeline spanning from North Dakota to Illinois.
