Standing Rock Responds to Oil Spill from the Dakota Access Pipeline

On April 4th, it was discovered that the Dakota Access pipeline had leaked 84-gallons of oil. The leak occurred 100-miles east of the Missouri River’s Lake Oahe reservoir, the source of drinking water for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.

Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Chairman Dave Archambault II response to the spill, “The Dakota Access pipeline has not yet started shipping the proposed half million barrels of oil per day and we are already seeing confirmed reports of oil spills from the pipeline. This is what we have said all along: oil pipelines leak and spill. Our lawsuit challenging this dangerous project is ongoing and it’s more important than ever for the court to step in and halt additional accidents before they happen – not just for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and our resources but for the 17 million people whose drinking water is at risk.”

America’s Government and Gas and Oil Corporate America, DAPL and Congress, Senate and Billionaires at Doing same thing to Our Native Families as England did to BlackWolf, Celtic Wolf and Scottish Stag. Enacting No just to Impact Our Families Water Source and Cause Our Native Families Environment to be so’s toxic to force Our Families to have to leave to Sustain Life. This Must NO happen! They’ve already driven Our Families from Black Hill’s!
    No this Is a Global Issue facing Native Cultures!
    Doing everything I’s can to get assistance from Environmentalist’s, Humanitarian’s and Peace-niks to help Our Families.
