Subject: DC March & Rally Against Violence at Standing Rock, 11/27, 12PM

Hello, activists!

While many of us were preparing for the Thanksgiving holiday, over 164 water protectors at Standing Rock were hospitalized after Morton County Police sprayed water cannons on the protectors in freezing weather. There are also reports of women being held in dog cages and the police using rubber bullets, concussion grenades, sound cannons, and mace against the water protectors.

In response, members of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe will be leading a march and rally against the Dakota Access Pipeline in Washington DC this SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 27TH, asking for the Department of Justice to step in and open an investigation against the Morton County Police’s use of violence against the water protectors at the Oceti Sakowin camp.

WHERE: The march will begin at the Department of Justice (1201 Pennsylvania Ave NW) and end at Sylvan Theater near the Washington Monument, where the rally will be held (Independence Ave SW & 15th Street NW).

WHEN: Sunday, November 27th. The march will begin at the Department of Justice at 12pm EST; The rally will begin after the march at Sylvan Theater at 1pm EST.

Please join the Standing Rock Sioux tribe in solidarity during this crucial moment for their community and environment.
