#noDAPL Nationl Day of Action at Army Corps of Engineers - On Tuesday, November 15th, join a massive day of action in solidarity with those at Standing Rock, and demand the Federal government and the Army Corps reject this pipeline. Indigenous leaders are calling on us to take to the streets and disrupt "business-as-usual" one week after the election to demand that President Obama’s Army Corps of Engineers and the incoming administration stop the Dakota Access Pipeline.

This is part of a national day of solidarity with the Indigenous Water Protectors at Standing Rock, North Dakota to stop construction of the Dakota Access PipeLine
1. just show up (this is extremely welcome and appreciated)
2. bring a sign - a statement about Solidarity/PIpelines/Water ...whatever you think is relevant is great.

TURNERS FALLS, MA EVENT
— #NoDAPL Day of Action. Join us for a solidarity action and rally at the Army Corps of Engineers office at Peskeomskut Park calling on them to revoke the permits for this dirty oil pipeline. The Army Corps fast-tracked the Dakota Access Pipeline without proper consultation, and as a result, bulldozers are approaching Standing Rock as we speak. But with coordinated, massive demonstrations across the country, we’ll make it clear that this powerful movement will not allow the Obama administration or the incoming President to sacrifice Indigenous rights, our water, or our climate - they must reject this pipeline.
3:30 PM - 4:30 PM
Peskeomskut Park
Avenue A.
Turners Falls, MA

If you use one of these banks for your accounts, mortgages, car or business loan or if you hold one of these banks' stocks, please let their CEO know that you reject their financing of the Dakota Access Pipeline which threatens air and water quality in many states, and urge them to divest from this project. Better yet, close your account and make sure they know why!
