The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has issued a December 5th eviction notice to the Water Protectors at Standing Rock. American Indian Movement, along with several groups from the SoCal Indigenous Peoples and Allies in Support of Standing Rock, intend to hold women-led prayers in front of the Los Angeles Army Corps office on the morning on December 5th in support of the Standing Rock Sioux and their reclamation of the land near the site slated for the Dakota Access Pipeline.

RSVP on Facebook:

Here is an update of the situation, with photos and videos of our November 15 action.

Since this summer, thousands of indigenous people and their allies opposed to the $3.8 billion, 1,172-mile-long Dakota Access pipeline have journeyed to the borderland of the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation, staking teepees and tents along the confluence of the Cannon Ball and Missouri Rivers. The property, managed by the Corps, is ancestral Treaty land of the Great Sioux Nation. Until November 25 the Corps had permitted Standing Rock Sioux tribal members and their supporters to occupy the plot — an area that the federal agency has leased for private grazing or haying purposes in the past.

Join us on Monday, December 5 for a prayer and rally at the Army Corps of Engineers office at 915 Wilshire Blvd at 11am calling on President Obama to instruct the Army Corps of Engineers to revoke the permits for this dirty oil pipeline and end the standoff immediately.
