Injustice anywhere threatens justice everywhere!
Join us to walk in solidarity with our brothers and sisters at Standing Rock! We will be gathering on the West lawn of the Capitol Building to then march up Pennsylvania Avenue to the Environmental Protection Agency to show our support.
We will meet at the Kingston NY I-87, exit 19 Traffic Circle park and ride at 5:45am on December 10th and the vehicles will leave promptly at 6am. The official Facebook event for this march is here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1696649317250421/
We will gather in the grassy area just west of the Capitol Reflecting Pool near the Capitol Building at 1pm on December 10. There are demonstrations being organized around the world on this day in honor of UN World Human Rights Day.
The march will end at 4pm and we will leave Washington DC at 5pm, arriving back in Kingston around 11:20pm.
This is just a friendly reminder that this will be a peaceful demonstration with the focus on showing our solidarity with Standing Rock and supporting the voice of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe
The ride will be a teach-in opportunity to learn about our own pipeline issues here in the Hudson Valley with the Spectra Algonquin/Aim Pipeline and Pilgrim Pipeline. We will have a chance to learn from Rachel Marco Havens and others about the pipeline threats in our backyard and how we can get involved. Rachel is the Co-Founder & Director of Earth Guardians New York, Youth Engagement Director of Earth Guardians Global, on the Board of Directors for the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater and on the Events Committee Chair of Kingston Citizens.
Dress warmly and consider packing a small backpack with food and water for the trip as we will be unable to access the vehicles after we park in the garage. Bring signs and banners with you that read things like: NoDAPL, Water is Life, Stand with Standing Rock, or whatever clever and relevant thing you can come up with. DUE TO PLANNING AND TIMING RESTRICTIONS, THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS GIVEN AFTER 5PM ET 12/6/16.
If you are not able to come, please share this event anyway and make a donation to Oceti Sakowin Camp to help the water protectors continue their front line defense.

David Archambault II explains what is at stake in his 8/24/16 NY Times Op-Ed piece...
"The nearly 1,200-mile pipeline, owned by a Texas oil company named Energy Transfer Partners, would snake across our treaty lands and through our ancestral burial grounds. Just a half-mile from our reservation boundary, the proposed route crosses the Missouri River, which provides drinking water for millions of Americans and irrigation water for thousands of acres of farming and ranching lands.
