President Obama: Make Standing Rock a National Monument

On November 15, Senator Bernie Sanders stood with tribal leaders in front of the White House and said: "I am honored to be with a worldwide community that are demanding the Dakota Access Pipeline not be built. We say to President Obama stop this pipeline in any way you can. Declare Standing Rock a national monument. And to Mr. Trump: We are not going silently into the night. The stakes are too high for the future of this planet."

Add your name to Bernie's:

We say to President Obama, in any and every way you can, stop the Dakota Access Pipeline. Declare the historic treaty lands of the Standing Rock Sioux threatened by the pipeline a federal monument.

    “Outrageous” is too pale a description of this Nazi-like action against our indigenous and allied protectors of the water, to say nothing of sacred lands legally owned by the Standing Rock Nation according to the Fort Laramie Treaty of 1851. Is not our USA word our bond? Apparently not! This action is beyond shame. Genocide comes to mind. Ethnic cleansing is not a foreign concept in American history. We are not surprised, just sickened. “Wakan Tanka Nici Un” : our only power is prayer.
