NoDAPL Rally, Concert and Call to Action

  • South side of the Iowa State Capitol (map)

Mni Wiconi - Water Is Life descends on Des Moines, Iowa with music, rousing speeches, a touch of comedy, and a call to action!

Tell Gov. Reynolds to appoint someone to the Iowa Utilities Board who's not a pawn of the fossil-fuel industry. Gov. Branstad's recent appointment of Richard Lozier, an attorney working for the pipeline company, is a slap in the face.

Remind Iowans that if the Iowa Supreme Court rules against the Iowa Utilities Board’s abuse of eminent domain, Energy Transfer Partners could be required to stop flowing oil and dig-up the pipeline -- a potentially fatal blow to the black snake.
