The Whitefish Rally in Solidarity with Standing Rock will feature Scott Brant from the Blackfeet-Nourish Project, who just returned from delivering food to the Standing Rock encampment in North Dakota. Richard Smith, a Whitefish architect and member of the Chippewa Tribe, also will speak.
Join us Tuesday, Sept. 13, 4 p.m. at the Depot Park sound stage in downtown Whitefish to find out what’s going on in North Dakota and across the U.S. to protect water and support clean energy.
The movement to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline is growing stronger by the day, and it’s time for all of us to support their stand. Join us Tuesday, Sept. 13, 4 p.m. at the Depot Park sound stage in downtown Whitefish.
The solidarity rally at Depot Park will be among dozens organized around the nation to coincide on Tuesday, September 13. Tribal leaders are joined by hundreds of grassroots groups, including Glacier Climate Action and 350.org, calling on President Obama to instruct the Army Corps of Engineers to revoke the permits for this dirty oil pipeline and consult properly with American tribes.
By gathering in Whitefish, we hope to call attention to the brave water and land protectors at Standing Rock and encourage the Obama Administration to support the Standing Rock Sioux and their fight to protect sacred lands, clean water and a clean energy future.
Please note that the Downtown Farmers Market begins at 5 p.m., so please do not park on Central Avenue.
