Tuesday 11/15: Spread the word and join us at 6:30am on this nationwide day of action. If you can join us in risking arrest taking nonviolent direct action, please attend an action training-orientation (times & locations are listed below) and please form or join an "affinity group" of friends/students/neighbors/family/co-workers/congregation/community to participate with you.


When water is being threatened, sacred sites are desecrated, rubber bullets, tasers, bean bags, and pepper spray are fired, continued violations of treaties and human rights, protectors being jailed, media communications being jammed, it is time we stand together in the BAY AREA in solidarity with the peoples of Standing Rock Sioux Reservation, in North Dakota, and against the Dakota Access Pipeline.

US Army Corps of Engineers Demands:
* Deny Permit to Bore Under the Missouri River
* Full Environmental Impact Statement must be completed.
Please write and bring a letter, to the event, addressed to the Army Corps of Engineers with your concerns about denying a permit to bore under the Missouri River, the permitting process, an Environmental Impact Review, and the protection of sacred and historic cultural sites.

Indigenous-led prayerful action. ABSOLUTELY NO drugs/alcohol allowed.
