Around the country, water protectors and their allies have planned emergency actions today (February 8) in response to the Army Corps of Engineers’ announcement yesterday that the Dakota Access Pipeline will be moving forward.

 Organizers within #NoDAPL have set up an online hub that lists actions throughout the month. "Help us fill every single day of this calendar with a #NoDAPL action,” it reads. While other days in February have anywhere from one to 13 actions, today lists 36, as of publication.

From Lawrence, Kansas to Seattle, organizers have planned actions to make one last stand against the administration. Per the Sacred Stone Camp website:

The Indigenous Coalition at Standing Rock is calling for February 8th to be an international day of emergency actions to disrupt business as usual and unleash a global intersectional resistance to fossil fuels and fascism. Connect with other struggles. Think long-term movement building. We are in this for the long haul.

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has consistently asked for people to go home, and we understand this. Regardless, water protectors remain on the ground at the Sacred Stone Camp, determined to stop the black snake, and we support them. If you go, expect police violence, mass arrests, felony charges for just about anything, abuse while in custody, targeted persecution and racial profiling while driving around the area, etc.

Native nations and tribes are planning to head to Washington, D.C. on March 10. The Standing Rock Sioux tribe is a major organizer.

"This pipeline did not receive a full environmental review and it will be built without legitimate consultation of the Native American tribes whose water is in danger." said Tribes

"I have determined that there is no cause for completing any additional environmental analysis," Acting Assistant Army Secretary Douglas Lamont said in a memo.
