BREAKING: Standoff at Vermont Rising Tide #NoDAP Blockade

From Earth First! Newswire

More than fifty activists with Vermont Rising Tide blockaded pipeline construction by Dakota Access contractor, Michaels Corporation in New Haven, Vermont, today to show solidarity with Standing Rocks.

Carol Irons, an Abenaki elder, spoke at the blockade, saying, “We come first to honor the Lakota people. This is Abenaki country. We are brothers and sisters with the Lakota and all other indigenous people. Its time for an uprising”

Crews have reportedly attempted to move machines, but the blockade remains strong.

This action takes place amid two weeks of solidarity actions called for by the Standing Rock blockade from September 3rd-17th. Rallies have taken place in numerous places throughout the US, from Bangor, Maine, to Boulder, Colorado, as well as Portland, Oregon, Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and Reno, Nevada.

Contributions to Standing Rock can be sent to the Red Warrior Camp and Sacred Stone Camp.
