The Fight Against Dakota Access Pipeline Will Continue

"We are Angered and Determined"

Statement of Wenonah Hauter, Executive Director, Food & Water Watch

WASHINGTON - “Today marks the latest episode in a long history of violation and disrespect toward American indigenous communities by the federal government. We are angered by the use of overwhelming force to clear peaceful water protectors from the Standing Rock camps, and we are more determined than ever to provide solidarity and support to indigenous communities across the country that are resisting dangerous fossil fuel infrastructure projects near their homes. The fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline will continue in the courts and in the streets. And our fight against the dirty, polluting, profit-driven fossil fuel industry will continue to grow in strength and determination from coast to coast.”
