Standing Rock Camp Evacuation

An urgent call for solidarity at Standing Rock for today, Wednesday, February 22, 2017 at 2:00 PM has been sent out from the UU Fellowship and Church of Bismarck-Mandan in conjunction with their work at Standing Rock. Please follow along with the UU Fellowship and Church of Bismarck-Mandan on Facebook  for their latest updates and how to support their ongoing ministry, including through the current Ministry-in-Residence Program.

Lakota People’s Law Project is also posting updates and videos from the camp on their website as well as on their Facebook page. Lokota People’s Law representatives are our eyes on the ground as the Water Protectors are cleaning up the camp and preparing to leave. The following is one of the latest postings on Facebook from Lakota People’s Law”

“It’s difficult out here at the #NoDAPL camp. Peaceful water protectors are surrounded on all sides by the army Corps, ND Law Enforcement, National Guard, and the BIA Federal Police. We are facing a federal raid within 48 hours.

This is the last call of the women—the people who have led this movement. Take action at LakotaLaw.org—contact your representatives in Washington and tell them you want justice now!”

We are asked to call our representatives in Washington today. See LakotaLaw.org for a suggested message.
