Fight for the Earth in Court

No to the Dakota Access Pipeline! But, please don’t protest at Standing Rock anymore. Fight for the Earth in the Court system.  Sue the federal government. Protesting – It’s too dangerous, and the militarized police and National Guard might kill you. They have already attacked many people, shot them and nearly blown off one woman’s arm. (Here is Jordan Chariton’s Facebook reporting on all this). This pipeline is not worth anyone’s life. Stop protesting there, protest it somewhere else if you have to, including online, including anywhere else but at Standing Rock. Move the protest. THEN: We have to sue the government for allowing this. Sue the government and the state for allowing a pipeline and breaking native treaties. But get out of harm’s way! Let’s get an army of lawyers working for the environment!
