No Spiritual Surrender
After Trump issued his directive to carry out the pipeline as planned, the Department of the Army announced on February 7th that it will grant the final easement to finish the 1,172-mile Dakota Access line. Thus allowing it to cross under Lake Oahe, part of the primary source of drinking water for the Standing Rock Sioux.
While the camp started coordinated cleanup in January, officials stated that it was moving too slowly. Today, the most important thing is the safety and wellbeing of those being evacuated from standing rock, as well as those who choose to stay. Please keep watch and call those in charge of the evacuation to make sure no violence or excessive force is used today.

I am calling for a safe and peaceful evacuation of those at Standing Rock, without the use of armed forces, violence, or possibility of recrimination. I am also calling for the recognition of those who choose to stay as peaceful water protectors. We will be watching!
