Dear Friends and Family:
To support native rights, and on behalf of the rivers, I am going to Standing Rock, South Dakota for a week, with Erin Josephine Canter.
We will join with Deena Metzger and others. Deena writes: “in the past, when a people were gravely threatened, Chiefs, Medicine People, Healers, Shamans, and Elders, called Councils. …People gathered in times of crises; we are gathering now.”
We go because what is happening on the banks of the Missouri River and all along the pipeline path is a one-sided war. We go to witness. We go to protest. We go to work, however we are needed.
You can contribute, too. I am gathering several duffle bags of wool, or mohair, or alpaca sweaters to give to people there. Also, we can take gift cards from Lowes, or phone cards (Verizon, StraightTalk). Or check or cash.
Please check out protest actions happening tomorrow, all over the country, in solidarity with Stanisn Rock, at 350.org
thank you. SueShare On:
