Standing Rock Fundraiser

  • SomaSpace: Movement Arts & Healing Center 4050 NE Broadway St Portland, Oregon 97232 (map)

The fight to stop the Dakota Pipeline is not over. There is a very good chance it will go through if we don’t act immediately, support the fight, and stop the pipeline right now!

This has become an urgent matter, with no time to waste. Here's a message from the Standing Rock Healers and Medic Council:

"The Army Corps is skipping the 14-day notification period and intend to grant the easement needed to drill no earlier than 24 hours after delivery of their Notice of Intent. 

Further threats to the water are clearly imminent. When the easement is granted, we're asking for mass-distributed actions in support of water protectors and the SRST tribe who will file for temporary restraining order and an injunction to halt construction, but as we've seen before those filings will not stop the machines from digging into Unci Maka, Mother Earth.

Construction could begin at any time. If you go to Standing Rock, expect police violence, mass arrests, felony charges for just about anything, abuse while in custody, targeted persecution and racial profiling while driving around the area, etc."

Show up to support the Water Protectors and all that Standing Rock represents! Come be together in community and use our collective energy to protect that which is sacred. 

All proceeds from the fundraiser will go towards the medical costs of those who suffered injuries while protesting and to the efforts of those who continue to monitor the situation on the ground.

There will be live music from local musicians, an art auction from a variety of local artists, and gift certificates from local small businesses, such as The Fossil Cartel and Nectar Cafe, that will be raffled off.

Please join us to support those who are peacefully protesting on the front lines to protect Water and Earth, as well as Natives’ Rights!
