350 Missoula is organizing support for the Standing Rock Sioux and
representatives of over 100 other Indian tribes who have gathered to stop
the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota. We ask that you participate in
a rally in Missoula next Tuesday, September 13.
The movement to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline is growing stronger. You
can demonstrate your support for the Standing Rock Sioux at the Sacred
Stones Camp by joining us in solidarity:
Tuesday, September 13th, on the Higgins Street Bridge from 4 to 6 P.M.
This is one of dozens of demonstrations organized by 350.org and all are
happening on September 13.

protectors not protesters.

can no longer be tolerated. Climate scientists, catastrophic weather
events, and historical data are converging: The action we take now is
critical to life in the very near future.
