To the staff of the Army Corp of Engineers:
Oppose Trump's approval of DAPL
Donald Trump is trying to ram through approval of the Dakota Access Pipeline. The $3.8 billion Dakota Access Pipeline will contaminate the Standing Rock Sioux's water and will constitute yet another attack on their sovereignty and way of life.
This is just the first of many actions Trump and the GOP plan to take to use infrastructure projects to destroy the lives of people of color. Today he’ll ram this pipeline through the Sioux community, tomorrow he will push through a lung-choking oil refinery in a Black neighborhood.
But this fight is far from over. The bureaucrats of the Army Corp of Engineers - the agency overseeing the pipeline construction - still have a lot of power to delay and block this project. We need to call on staff within Army Corp of Engineers to oppose Trump by throwing sand in the gears of this destructive project. With their help we can stall this out.
Here is the Petition:
Donald Trump is dependent on your cooperation. He can only force through the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline and destroy the drinking water of the Standing Rock Sioux if the staff of the Army Corp of Engineers willingly complies with his orders. Whether you slow down your work, block sections of the work, or generally throw sand in the gears of the pipeline approval process, we need you to accept your role in opposing Trump and this pipeline.
The lives and health of the Standing Rock Sioux are at risk if this pipeline gets finalized. As people of good conscience, we call on you to help block the Dakota Access Pipeline and Trump's agenda of environmental racism.
