More Actions Pledged in Support of Standing Rock Sioux

Nearly a hundred local supporters of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe gathered at the Town Clock on Tuesday evening for a loud, raucous and joyous celebration of the NoDAPL Day of Action Santa Cruz. Primary organizer Allegra David led the group on a march down Pacific Avenue to full throated chants of "Water is Life" and "You Can't Drink Oil. The group's spirits were somewhat uplifted by the report that the Army Corps of Engineers dealt a blow to the progress of the Dakota Access Pipeline on Monday, saying in a letter that more analysis and discussion with the Standing Rock Sioux tribe is needed before construction can take place under the Missouri River.

At the end of the march, folks formed a circle held hands in the plaza across from the Post Office where Allegra led the group in prayer and a silent vigil in support of Standing Rock. Other local organizers asked people to join the Santa Cruz Stands With Standing Rock Facebook page and pledged to continue the fight for our brothers and sisters on the front lines in North Dakota as winter approaches.
