NCAI Action Alert: Stand for Standing Rock – Authorities Use Water Cannons, Tear Gas, & Rubber Bullets Against Water Protectors

Last night, water protectors in Cannon Ball, ND were subjected to unreasonable and inhumane force, including the use of a water cannon in below freezing weather, tear gas, and being indiscriminately shot with rubber bullets. We ask that you continue to pray and stand with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and the water protectors.

Here’s what you can do to help, please visit http://standwithstandingrock.net/ to call the White House to ask them to deny the easement to drill under Lake Oahe and donate to the Standing Rock to help provide services for the peaceful and prayerful water protectors and continue the fight.

The water protectors at Camp Oceti Sakowin are looking for the following items to help brave the winter conditions like sleeping bags (sub-zero), good stoves and non-perishable food.  A list of suggested items and shipping info is here: http://standwithstandingrock.net/oceti-sakowin/.
