A CALL TO ACTION TO ALL OUR ONE BILLION RISING ACTIVISTS IN THE UNITED STATES AND AROUND THE WORLD:
RISE IN SUPPORT OF THE INDIGENOUS LED MOVEMENT TO STOP THE DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE!
RISE THIS TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13TH!
RISE AGAINST CAPITALIST GREED AND THE FIGHT TO PROTECT WATER, LAND AND CLIMATE!
RISE TO DEMAND FROM PRESIDENT OBAMA THE RESCINDING OF THE ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS PERMIT FOR THE DAKOTA ACCESS PIPELINE!
Be part of a national day of action against the Dakota Access Pipeline this Tuesday, September 13th – and take a stand in SOLIDARITY with indigenous communities who are putting their bodies and lives at risk on the front lines of a major movement to protect water, climate, land and the sovereign rights of indigenous peoples. The movement to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline needs all of us to RISE, be counted, to have all our voices of indignation be heard, and put our rage and demand for justice into ACTION.
If you are in the US, there are hundreds of protest actions taking place around the country. If you are outside the US, organize your own event and RISE IN SOLIDARITY!
For the past four years One Billion Rising has continued to be an escalated call for radical change for women and girls focusing on the most marginalized sectors – as well as a global demand to end to the global impunity that sustains the culture of violence.
All over the world, people rose against all forms of violence – not only sexual and gender violence, but also the violence of poverty, inequality, marginalization and EXPLOITATION. OBR activists around the world have been RISING against the global capitalist systems, that include all extraction industries, that continue to place profit over people, that cause and sustain worsening forms of poverty, and unprecedented forms of economic and environmental exploitation and devastation – that render women and girls some of the most vulnerable. One Billion Rising activists around will continue to highlight and rise against where these systems support each other in the continuing oppression and exploitation of some of the most marginalized sectors – women and girls and indigenous communities.
“If built, Dakota Access would carry toxic fracked oil from North Dakota across four states and under the Missouri River, immediately upstream from the Standing Rock Sioux Nation. That makes it a threat to the sacred land and water of Native communities and a disaster for the climate.” – #NoDAPL Day of Action/ Action Network
“The Earth is our Mother. From her we get our life, and our life, and our ability to live. It is our responsibility to care for our mother, and in caring for our Mother, we care for ourselves. Women, all females, are the manifestation of Mother Earth in human form. We are her daughters and in my cultural instructions: Minobimaatisiiwin. We are to care for her. I am taught to live in respect for Mother Earth. What befalls our mother Earth, befalls her daughter — the women who are the mothers of our nations.
The reality is that all of these conditions — those emanating from the military and industrial devastation of our Mother the Earth, and subsequently, our own bodies, and the land on which we live — are mimicked in social and development policies which affect women.” – WINONA LA DUKE
