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.

    Dear President Obama, Please add stopping the Dakota Access Pipeline to your list of proud accomplishments. Why the oil corporations did not simply reroute or find a better solution is beyond comprehension, but they didn’t. Instead they are treating Native Americans in cruel and inhumane ways as if trying to show the world that they were not worthy of any regard or respect. Please show them the regard and respect of our Nation by making this Sacred Land a monument.

    There should be an investigation of how the Army Corps of Engineers provided permits for a project which was given to them in little pieces with the obvious intent of bypassing proper environmental evaluation. This winking at fraud should be revealed and stamped out.
