Stand with Standing Rock- GVL

Start: Tuesday, September 13, 2016 3:30 PM

End: Tuesday, September 13, 2016 6:30 PM

This event is RAIN or SHINE event, if it gets too bad to stay out in the elements, we will move to Bo Diddly Plaza under the stage and have an organizing meeting instead.  

The movement to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline is growing stronger by the day, and it’s time for all of us to rise up and play a role in this fight – no matter where we live.

Join us on Tuesday, September 13 for a solidarity action and rally at the corner of University and Main Street at 3:30pm calling on President Obama to instruct the Army Corps of Engineers to revoke the permits for this dirty oil pipeline.

By gathering before the County Commissioners Meeting we hope to call attention to the brave water and land protectors at Standing Rock and encourage Alachua County Commissioners, the City of Gainesville, the Army Corps of Engineers, and the many banks including Wells Fargo to make a public statement in solidarity with Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.
