Dakota Access is moving forward with construction of their dangerous Bakken Pipeline that is threatening our water, land and climate, yet President Obama has been silent.
The regulatory authorities who granted approval for construction pushed this decision forward without due diligence.
- They granted eminent domain for a project that doesn’t meet the criteria for this privilege
- No Environmental Impact Statement or other stringent environmental evaluation was conducted despite the project crossing numerous rivers, streams and environmentally sensitive areas
- There was no adequate consultation with the tribes, as required by law or consideration of tribal treaties — Check out this article that explains more
The President needs to take a stand to protect landowners’ and tribal rights, as well as our land, water, and climate.
Sign the petition today. Share with others. Let’s make sure President Obama hears our voices.
