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.

    Trump is determined to destroy your legacy please make the National Monument mean America will not have XL Pipeline during your lifetime. Native Americans have been harmed for too long give them something to remember you in a great light and save our natural resources for future generations to admire I have visited the west and lived there much has been destroyed during Bush years please do not let Trump sell off rest of our legacy. Thank you for all your service and dedication to America and its people —-all people. May Faulk

    DAPL is an abomination to native rights, to all dependent on Missouri River water, to our shared climate. Our shared future is in jeopardy from fossil fuel mining/transportation/refining/combustion, all of which must be eliminated. Keep fossil fuels in the ground and invest in renewable, non-polluting energy.

    We are being eaten alive by the ravagers of this planet just before they eat each other. President Obama, we ask you again to do the only decent thing and help us save what is left and keep the family of man alive to live within the means of Planet Earth…It is the well-spring of all living things. Please, please help us keep it that way.

    Please no pipeline under the river. Clean water security is always a priority always. Canada can reroute or keep it in their own country!!
