Brattleboro says #NoDAPL
Start: September 13, 2016• 3:45 PM
End: September 13, 2016• 6:00 PM
Pliny Park• High St/Main St, Brattleboro, VT 05301
Join us on Tuesday, September 13 for a solidarity action and rally at Pliny Park at 3:45 calling on President Obama to instruct the Army Corps of Engineers to revoke the permits for this dirty oil pipeline. After assembling at the park we will move as a group to a location downtown to make our voices heard.
We will begin by gathering at the park, learning from (and about) each other and then at about 4pm move together to Main St to call on President Obama to revoke the pipeline. There will be sidewalk chalk for children to use to tag the streets with words of support for the water protectors. After assembling as a group some of us will move to TD Bank to demonstrate our disapproval of their part in the pipeline construction. Let us be colorful, joyful and positive!
If you haven’t read about it in the media, right now there is one of the most courageous stands against a fossil fuel project this country has ever seen. The movement to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline is growing stronger by the day, and it’s time for all of us to rise up and play a role in this fight – no matter where we live. 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.
