A lot of people have taken up the cause of Native Americans and started fighting against the Dakota Access Pipeline (or DAPL.)
I want to give you some resources to fight with.
Please review the information below and consider getting involved:
First, the agency that approved the pipeline is called the Army Corps of Engineers. Your tax dollars pay for their salary, so you have every right to call them and demand that they listen to your objections to this pipeline.
Click the link above for their website, or write to them at:
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
441 G Street NW
Washington, DC 20314-1000
You can also call them at 1 + 202-761-0011
Remember, it’s all well and good to “like” things on Facebook, but we need to actually speak out if we want people to listen.
Now, the company that is building the pipeline is called Energy Transfer Partners.
You can absolutely contact them and protest their use of mace and attack dogs on peaceful protesters.
Call them at: 214-599-8785
Or e-mail: Vicki.Granado@energytransfer.com
Let them know that you will do everything in your power to stop the pipeline.
Of course, it’s also good to make sure that our government (who again, work for you) is aware of your objections.
Please click this link to find out who your representatives are, and to tell them how much you disapprove of the pipeline.
You can also speak to the White House:
E-mail through their website (link above.)
Or write a letter:
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500
You can also support presidential candidate Jill Stein, who is the only one to come out and support the cause.
She is a presidential candidate who legitimately cares, and understands that sometimes civil disobedience is the only way to get results.
Please remember: This fight involves all of us. This is a fight for the people of the United States, and against the corporations who want to destroy our land and water.
Please get involved!
