Here’s an excerpt of a recent statement by the Lakota grassroots organization Owe Aku:
“We do not want kxl, we do not want tarsands in our lands, the tarsands must stay in the ground, the extraction and its aftermath is killing humans and all of life up there, and wasting precious water… Please take a moment to help get our words, thoughts, and prayers out to the world, all over Unci Maka, that Lakota People, and many other Red Nations people, we have painted our faces. Our allies up north have painted their faces. For sacred water, for Unci Maka, for our generations.”
The Lakota people and their allies are preparing in case it should be necessary to put “Moccasins on the Ground” and protect sacred land and water from the threat of KXL.
A solid way YOU can support Lakota grassroots resistance to KXL is by chipping in a few bucks to fund the ‘Moccasins on the Ground’ activist training series. Its coming up soon (April 25-27), and more funding is needed. Please click here: www.everribbon.com/oweaku
The three-day training provides the skills necessary to be on the front lines of environmental justice and sacred water protection work. For more info, check out www.oweakuinternational.org
