Resist Trump EVERY Friday at U.S. Boulder Labs! #NoDAPL

  • u.s. dept of commerce 325 Broadway St, # 26 Boulder CO (map)

Bring signs! We unite in opposition against the U.S. Army Corps granting of an easement for DAPL to cross Lake Oahe and ETP's current drilling. Come join a peaceful creative demonstration every Friday 4-6 pm from now until the Science March on Boulder (Friday, April 21) directed at all 1,800+ scientists & employees working in U.S. Department of Commerce Boulder Labs (home of scientific laboratories including NIST, NOAA and NTIA): http://www.boulder.doc.gov/

We call on these federal employees and recipients of federal funding to resist and oppose #NotMyPresident Trump's executive orders advancing previously rejected oil pipelines and his administration's extremist denial of climate science.

The U.S. Department of Commerce, administrator of Boulder Labs, is implicated in the federal government's recent approval of controversial Dakota Access and Keystone XL Pipelines. One of Trump's executive orders actually directs the Secretary of Commerce to "develop a plan under which all new pipelines, as well as retrofitted, repaired, or expanded pipelines" in the United States "use materials and equipment produced in the United States." 

As we know, whether the pipeline materials are made in the U.S. or China does not matter. Either way, the oil pipeline will inevitably spill and poison the waters. Either way, Standing Rock Sioux Tribe is threatened with genocide and their sovereign treaty rights horribly disrespected. 

We stand with Standing Rock! We call on U.S. Department of Commerce Boulder Labs scientists and employees to join in resistance and stand with Standing Rock too!

The U. S. Department of Commerce Boulder Labs are scientific laboratories including NIST, NOAA and NTIA. Clustered on the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Boulder Colorado, these labs are the home of scientific research and engineering in the fields of electromagnetics, materials reliability. optoelectronics, quantum electronics and physics, time and frequency, earth systems, weather and telecommunications. NOAA Finance and Administrative Services Offices located in Boulder offer services in Acquisition, Workforce Management, Facilities Management and Information Technology to their customers, both in Boulder and around the world.
