Phoenix With Standing Rock – #NoDAPL Day of Action
September 13, 2016 @ 4:00 am - 6:00 pm
The movement to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline is growing stronger by the day, and it’s time for all of us to rise up and play a role in this fight – no matter where we live.
Join Renetto-Mario Etsitty and Stacey Champion on Tuesday, September 13 for a solidarity action and rally at Steele Indian School Park (use the Central Ave. entrance to park across from George and Dragon) at 4:00 PM calling on President Obama to instruct the Army Corps of Engineers to revoke the permits for this dirty oil pipeline. We will line the sidewalks with our bodies, signs & voices on the NE corner of Central Ave. & Indian School Rd. from 4 – 5 PM, then will march up Central Avenue together and into the park to hear from Native speakers who will also address local issues surrounding water and desecration of sacred land, followed by a drum circle. Those joining us with small children are welcome to gather in the park for the first hour for safety issues as there is a lot of traffic at this time.
By gathering at Steele Indian School Park, we hope to call attention to the brave water and land protectors at Standing Rock and encourage the Army Corps of Engineers, City, County & State elected leaders in Arizona and the President of the United States to take a stand against greed and dirty energy which puts our greatest natural resource- WATER – at risk for generations to come.
