Human Rights

The entire nuclear fuel chain involves the release of radioactivity, contamination of the environment and damage to human health. Most often, communities of color, indigenous peoples or those of low-income are targeted to bear the brunt of these impacts, particularly the damaging health and environmental effects of uranium mining. The nuclear power industry inevitably violates human rights.

Rise with Standing Rock this Friday

Action alert from Collin Rees, Campaigner, Oil Change International:

Last month, the main Oceti Sakowin Camp at Standing Rock was emptied. But new camps are already forming on higher ground, and the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s message is loud and clear: This isn’t the end of the Standing Rock fight. It’s just the beginning.

We’ve known from the start that regardless of what happened with Dakota Access, there’d be much more work to do. And now the fight has come to D.C. Earlier today, the Standing Rock Sioux and indigenous allies set up tipis on the National Mall and began an encampment that will last all week.

NATIVE NATIONS RISING

FRIDAY, 10AM


Join the Native Nations march in DC this Friday.

The week of action, prayer, and ceremony will culminate with a march on Friday through the streets of Washington, D.C. – and the Standing Rock Sioux have asked all allies to join them. Join “Native Nations Rising: Rise with Standing Rock” this Friday in D.C. to stand in solidarity with Indigenous nations across the country.

This mass demonstration – called for by the Standing Rock Sioux, Indigenous Environmental Network, and Native Organizers Alliance, among others – on Friday, March 10th, will carry the momentum from Standing Rock forward as we continue fighting to protect native sovereignty and keep fossil fuels in the ground. Here are the details:

  • What: “Native Nations Rising: Rise with Standing Rock” march on Washington
  • When: Friday, March 10, from 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
  • Where: March starts at Army Corps of Engineers (443 G St. NW) and ends at Lafayette Square in front of the White House with a 12:00 PM rally

We will march to demand that Indigenous rights be respected, that tribal consent is given when any economic development happens on tribal land, and that President Trump meet with Tribal Leaders so he can be held accountable for the impact of his actions.

Click here to say you’ll be there and to get more details.

To all of those who were spurred to action because of the Dakota Access fight – and to all those who were already involved – we need you now more than ever. It’s our duty to follow through with our solidarity and stand with all Indigenous communities who are fighting to defend their land, water, and rights.

No one can extinguish the fire that Standing Rock started. It burns within each of us. This Friday we will rise, we’ll resist, and we’ll thrive.

I’ll be there.

Join me,
