"MNI WICONI WATER IS LIFE
Solidarity with Sacred Stone Camp’s effort to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline and the call for Obama to free Native American political prisoner Leonard Peltier:

Sunday, September 25, 2016
3:00 - 6:00 PM
Downtown Post Office Santa Cruz
Front and Water Streets
Santa Cruz, California

Ceremony with Bobby Castillo of the Apache/Xicano Nations and former International Spokesperson for the Leonard Peltier Defense Committee, Food Not Bombs will share free vegan meals, Livity Rising Mobile Clinic will also provide free holistic healing, and traditional mbira music of Zimbabwe by Tom Melkonian and Melissa Cara Rigoli.

The Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) is owned by Energy Transfer Partners of Houston, Texas. The DAPL, also known as the Bakken Pipeline, is proposed to transport 450,000 barrels of crude oil per day (which is fracked and highly volatile) from the Bakken fields of North Dakota to Patoka, Illinois. Dakota Access has failed to consult with tribes and conduct a full Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). Construction has already damage burial grounds and could poison the sacred Missouri River and aquifer.

Federal government reports show that there have been more than 8,700 significant incidents with U.S. pipelines involving death, injury, and economic and environmental damage since 1986—more than 300 per year.

Leonard Peltier was targeted and unjustly convicted in 1977 for his work defending Indian land in South Dakota from the ravages of the fossil industry. He is part of the same struggle to defend the sacred Dakotas taking place today at Standing Rock.

WE WILL NOT ALLOW THIS PIPELINE TO CROSS OUR LAND, WATER, AND SACRED SITES.
