Jason Momoa just proved why he deserves to be the King of Atlantis, supporting "Rezpect Our Water," a cause dedicated to stopping Dakota Access Pipeline due to its potential to pollute and destroy environment.

 With only days left to go until the Army Corps of Engineers makes a decision on whether they will allow the potentially devastating Dakota Access Pipeline to cross under the Missouri River a few feet north of the Standing Rock Reservation, the Tribe’s efforts to stop the pipeline in a campaign called #RezpectOurWater are gaining serious traction. This weekend, three stars from the upcoming Justice League film—Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher—have published messages in support of Standing Rock and in protest of the pipeline on social media channels.

Momoa was the first to jump on board with the #RezpectOurWater campaign through a post on his personal Instagram account, @prideofgypsies.

In the photo, Momoa holds a sign that states, “Oil Pipelines Are a Bad Idea.” The sign includes a list of relevant hashtags from the Tribe’s social media campaign.

Shortly after Momoa posted his photo, Miller and Fisher shared the same message via a video published on the YouTube channel. In their video, they urge fans and supporters to sign the petition to prevent the pipeline from crossing under Standing Rock’s primary water source, the Missouri River.

“We want to say that our hearts are with the Native youth of the Standing Rock Reservation, and that we oppose the Dakota Access Pipeline,” Miller said in the video, which was shot on the Justice League film set.

Organizers, officials and youth from the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe hope to encourage many more public figures and influential people to join their fight against the pipeline through statements of support and signing the petition, as a pipeline break would surely devastate the environment, health and well-being of the land and people of the Great Sioux Nation.

As of Monday afternoon May 9, more than 38,174 people had signed the petition on, about 11,000 shy of the stated goal of 50,000 signatures.

    In the 70's oil companies claimed drilling in the ocean was ok and that there would be no spills. Now these same oil companies are building pipelines on lands that does not belong to them. All lands in America was stolen from first nations. Say no to greedy maga corporations

  3. Posting this comment with variations today in MSM, google+, tumblr, FB etc. Syria was a beautiful country where tourists were welcome. Shopping, food, markets. Now This The People, Native Americans, are being arrested for trying to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline. It does not matter whether it is a Bush administration or a Clinton administration who got us involved in this war. We, the US have 800 military bases worldwide and the rest of the world has 30 total. We, the US, have the highest debt of any country $50,000.00+ per person and rising by the second. Shady deals lead to sales in weapons costing billions of dollars. If we, the US are selling weapons that cost billions of dollars, why are we broke? This president knows what Monsanto is and what Monsanto does - poisons the earth and the people of the earth so that the rise in diabetes, epilepsy, autism, asthma... environmental illnesses are crippling us and in our suffering we are allowing the world to be destroyed in the name of freedom. Hungary has to reach world news by burning its GMO crops, 1 million children in Thailand re meditating for world peace and college students are making videos begging for the International Criminal court and the UN to stop America from killing them. This president is in league with a regime of terror that is taking away our freedom to govern ourselves. Impeach him or the US constitution will be no more. tumblr Super-Ukdena-Medicine-Woman
