Solidarity demonstrations stand with Standing Rock

People across the country are taking to the streets to show solidarity with the people of the Standing Rock reservation struggling to block the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. Leaks, worsened climate change and other environmental catastrophes are the inevitable consequence of these types of fossil fuel mega-projects.

On August 24, hundreds rallied outside of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia during a federal court hearing on Standing Rock Sioux Tribes's legal appeal for an injunction that is part of the struggle being waged to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline. The judge announced that he will make his ruling on Sept. 9 and set the next hearing date for Sept. 14.

In addition to the major action that took place outside the federal courthouse in Washington, D.C., during the court hearing,  solidarity actions have taken place from Connecticut to New Mexico to California.
