Will you sign?

For every 1000 signatures, NationofChange will send a letter to the Trump administration, demanding they stop big oil from completing the Dakota Access Pipeline.

[Update: We have sent the next letter to President Obama with 6,000+ of your signatures, demanding the Dakota Access Pipeline be abandoned. We will continue to send letters every 1,000 signatures. Thank you!]

UPDATE: The Army Corps of Engineers has denied the permit for the Dakota Access Pipeline, but Energy Transfer Partners insists that they will go ahead with the project.

3,000+ signatures sent to Obama

1,281 professionals from institutions like the Smithsonian and the Association of Academic Museums and Galleries claim that the construction work from the pipeline destroyed “ancient burial sites, places of prayer and other significant cultural artifacts sacred to the Lakota and Dakota people.”

The letter reads further: “The destruction of these sacred sites adds yet another injury to the Lakota, Dakota and other Indigenous Peoples who bear the impacts of fossil fuel extraction and transportation. If constructed, this pipeline will continue to encourage oil consumption that causes climate change, all the while harming those populations who contributed little to this crisis.”

President Obama halted temporarily construction on the the $3.8bn, 1,170-mile pipeline after the Standing Rock Sioux tribe legally challenged the project. The pipeline is supposed to funnel oil from the Bakken oil Fields in the Great Plains to Illinois and run next to the Standing Rock Sioux reservation.

We need to ensure the company abandons the pipeline on American Indian land. Sign the petition and stand with the thousands of professionals, and the Standing Rock Sioux, to tell the Trump administration to stop big oil from completing the Dakota Access pipeline for its destruction of Standing Rock Sioux lands, burial sites, and ancient artifacts that are crucial to our understanding of American heritage.

  • Stop the pipeline. This is treaty land (sovereign nation land) it can not be taken through America’s legal system… It can know be given by Native Americans. They choose not to give it. The pipeline is going to cross their only source of drinking water. Pipelines leak and break… You do not have the right to take their land and pollute their water. The last peaceful protest was ended because over 5,000 veterans of this country showed up in opposition of this pipeline. You will be starting a potential civil war and all other nations are watching… The UN is watching… Is this really what you want for America?

  • From my perspective two things matter: the well being of people and the well being of the earth. Without their survival no wealth or well being is really possible.
  • The Army Corps of Engineers has blocked Energy Transfer’s application to install pipeline on this route. It’s illegal for them to continue. Also over 12 million Americans live downstream from the Missouri River location which they want to drill. Energy Transfer Partners has the worst record for leaky pipelines of all contractors.
