Since April, the Standing Rock Sioux Nation in North Dakota have stood in direct opposition to the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline by fossil-fuel corporation Energy Transfer Partners. Permitted to run through their sacred lands in violation of the 1851 Treaty of Fort Laramie, the pipeline is routed to run under Lake Oahe, feeding the Missouri River and risking environmental catastrophe for millions of indigenous and non-indigenous people alike. The Standing Rock resistance has grown into a movement led and organized by the largest coalition of indigenous First Nations in modern history, and has faced repeated violence at the hands of militarized police directed by the Morton County Sheriff’s Department and Governor Jack Darympyle have injured hundreds of peaceful water protectors.
Move to Amend stands in solidarity with Standing Rock, with national staff and volunteers recently traveling to Oceti Sakowin Camp to deliver supplies and support the resistance at Standing Rock. This week, we’ll be exploring the Standing Rock movement features on the ground interviews with movement organizers, the most current analyzes of the US Army Corps’ decision, and reflections from the Move to Amenders who traveled to Standing Rock delivering supplies & standing in solidarity.
Move to Amend Reports is hosted by Laura Bonham, member of Move to Amend's National Leadership Team. Executive producer is Keyan Bliss. Production team is Kaitlin Sopoci-Belknap, Keyan Bliss, Laura Bonham, Daniel Lee, and Renee Babcock.
