The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and Indigenous grassroots leaders are calling on allies across the United States and around the world to peacefully March on Washington DC today, March 10th.
WEA rises in spirit, solidarity and allyship with the Indigenous peoples of the world whose rights protect our earth for the future generations of all.
As march organizes have stated, “The Standing Rock movement is bigger than one tribe. It has evolved into a powerful global phenomenon highlighting the necessity to respect Indigenous Nations and their right to protect their homelands, environment and future generations. We are asking our Native relatives from across Turtle Island to rise with us. This is not just about protecting the rights of one tribe, or standing with one nation. If we envision a world where Indigenous people led on environmental and climate issues, we have to protect the rights of all tribal nations and all Indigenous Peoples.”
Indigenous Rights mean Climate Justice.
Indigenous Rights protect water, air, and land.
If you are in the Washington DC area today, please rise in solidarity and allyship with those who are marching for Indigenous rights and the rights of our earth and future generations. More information on the Washington DC march can be found here.
If you’re not in the DC area today, there are solidarity marches taking place all over the country, including a march in San Francisco tonight by Idle No More SF Bay, and we encourage everyone to come out and stand alongside our sisters and brothers.
