“After months of enduring brutal treatment in harsh weather conditions, the water protectors at Standing Rock and their supporters could celebrate at last on Sunday when the Obama administration denied the final application needed to complete the Dakota Access pipeline. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced it will undertake a comprehensive environmental review of alternate pipeline routes — or decide to cancel the pipeline altogether.

“Pipeline leaks are incredibly common and incredibly dangerous,” said Randi Spivak with the Center for Biological Diversity. “This pipeline has promised to threaten every community it cuts through, endangering the water supply of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe — and our climate.”

    1. Absolutely Marsha, and I must have signed 5 or 6 petitions while the whole thing was going on (all I could find, at any rate). Unfortunately, there is more trouble brewing in another state for our red brothers, I’ll find out more info and be bringing it to you. The more petitions that are signed, the higher the probability of stopping another attempt to co-opt Native land and water resources. Bright blessings, Di and the kitty boys
