Cassandra Begay – The Pandos Tribal Liaison – went to Park City to stand in solidarity with Standing Rock water protectors and to interview LaDonna Brave Bulll, the founder of the first resistance camp (Sacred Stone) in Standing Rock, and Sarrain Fox, host of the Rise documentary series.
On Saturday, November 26 at 3pm Central Standard Time (9pm GMT) over 40,000 people joined a globally synchronized action of prayer with Standing Rock.
We joined the Water Protectors in Standing Rock through our natural environment, around a source of water and a sacred fire, to raise our energies in prayer.
Wells Fargo is the lead bank investing in the Dakota Access Pipeline- DAPL. That makes them complicit in the abusive treatment of water protectors and members of the media. They are also accountable for the damage to the environment this pipeline is causing.
The banks funding this atrocity depend on lots of people who deposit their cash in checking or savings accounts. They are using our money to fund this ecologically destructive project.
This action was meant to send a message to both the public, asking them to divert their funds to local credit union as well as let Wells Fargo know where we stand with their actions.
Solidarity, one of the best experiences of my life. Incredibly powerful, hear the drums, energized moments of my life. – quotes.
The Red Warrior Camp, in partnership with the Camp of the Sacred Stones issued an official Call to Action for allies from around the world to stand in solidarity with the groups by joining the #NoDAPL Global Weeks of Solidarity Actions from September 3 – 17.
According to the call to action “Water is a necessity for all life. Water is life. Now is the time for all people from all walks of life to join together to stop the desecration and destruction of water, land and life!”
This action drew together many people to help plan and contribute. Quite a few continued, growing and gaining more people… eventually becoming known as PANDOS.
