Philly Solidarity March with Standing Rock Defenders #NoDAPL

Start: Saturday, September 17, 2016 1:00 PM

For more info: In response of the Global Weeks of Action called by Red Warrior Camp and Camp of the Sacred Stones, Philadelphia will be marching in solidarity with Indigneous land defenders on the Standing Rock reservation in North Dakota. Sunoco Logistics is currently trying to build the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) that threatens cultural sites on the reservation, and TD Bank has provided a loan for construction of the DAPL, an 1,120 mile fracked-oil pipeline. The pipeline would be installed underneath the Missouri River a 1/2 mile upstream of the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation. Last week, DAPL crews bulldozed through recently identified burial grounds and sacred sites, deploying attack dogs when confronted by non-violent water protectors. Sunoco Logistics and TD Bank both have a presence in Philadelphia and are actively profiting off of this cultural genocide and the destruction of water and Earth. We will be marching through downtown Philly, starting at Philly City Hall (15th and Market). In the spirit of the Camps this protest will be completely non-violent. There are many ways to support Standing Rock.You can directly send funds and supplies to the camps here: And attend the fundraiser in West Philly on Monday: For questions, email #WaterIsLife #NoDAPL #PhillyNoDAPL
