Lee County has succumbed to pressure from Dakota Access to evict the peaceful Mississippi Stand camp.
We all live in the Mississippi watershed. Many of you have joined with Mississipi Stand in direct actions the past weekends or have been following their efforts on facebook the past weeks as they work to stop Dakota Access from drilling beneath the Mississippi River near Sandusky. The resistance is working! We are putting Big Oil on the defensive. The camp was served with an eviction notice effective Thursday, October 6th.

Let them know your name and where you’re from, that you oppose Dakota Access’ Bakken pipeline, and that they 1) must protect the right of the water protectors to peacefully assemble and 2) must immediately revoke the evacuation notice, and 3) stop all hostility toward the water protectors.
These water protectors represent thousands of Iowans opposed to this pipeline and thousands more nationwide who oppose the use of our land and rivers to further the private profit of Big Oil.
This bullying has to stop. Thank you for your help!
