We’re living in the middle of a revolution against fossil fuel projects in America. The movement to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline has taken the nation by storm as the images of Native American protectors facing down bulldozers, snarling dogs and armed police in an effort to stop a major fracked-oil pipeline have inspired millions around the world.1

Now, the protectors camped in the path of the Dakota Access pipeline have asked all of us — no matter where we live — to take action in solidarity with them and say #NoDAPL. Will you answer the call?
Solidarity actions are taking place on Tuesday all over the world.

By gathering at the Government Center, we honor the brave water and land protectors at Standing Rock, we consider how to educate people about divesting from fossil fuels, we pledge to show up against planetary destruction by dirty oil.

Please bring art and banners — and be sure to share on social media with #NoDAPL. Some sample messages for art include:
•    People over Pipelines
•    #NoDAPL
•    In Solidarity with Standing Rock
•    Citibank: Divest from Dirty Oil
•    Wells Fargo: Divest from Dirty Oil
