A message from Sara Shor of 350.org: “Last week Donald Trump told the US Army Corps of Engineers to stop their comprehensive environmental review of the Dakota Access Pipeline. It’s up to us to deny that request.
Yesterday, things got worse. This review moved one step closer to being scrapped as the Acting Secretary of the Army Corps directed them to grant the final permit needed. It could happen any time now and construction could resume – unless we flood the Army Corps with comments telling them to continue their full environmental review of the pipeline.
If we succeed, DAPL will be forced through a multi-month review of its impact on drinking water, tribal rights and the climate. The only way to approve this pipeline without conducting the review would be to to disregard the hundreds of thousands of comments from people like you.
Join the resistance: send a comment to the Army Corps of Engineers demanding a comprehensive environmental review of the Dakota Access Pipeline:
The Standing Rock Sioux tribe, whose drinking water and sacred sites have been desecrated by this pipeline, already announced plans to sue to stop any action to expedite DAPL. Every comment we send bolsters their legal case that the federal government would be abandoning their own rules and procedures by illegally forcing the project through.”
