Stop Militarized Response to Standing Rock Water Protectors. Sign the petition.

https://www.change.org/p/president-obama-stop-militarized-response-to-standing-rock-water-protectors



Reports are pouring out from Standing Rock that the military are now moving in against the peaceful protectors who are camped to protect the water. Militarized police are macing peaceful men, women and children. Militarized police are rounding up protectors, charging them with trespassing, and subjecting them to strip search and overnight incarceration. This behavior is a flagrant abuse of civil liberties.

There are more than 375 Tribes, and thousands of allies, who have come together from all over the world to highlight the importance of clean water.

More than 7,000 people, including peaceful women, children and elders, have gathered at the camps, dedicated to raising awareness and understanding of this vital issue. Present day protectors march in prayer to protect the water of their children and the bones of their ancestors....

Please sign this petition, demanding the de-militarization of the police and the National Guard, demand they cease their attacks against the peaceful water protectors at Standing Rock and their withdrawal from the treaty territory of the Great Sioux Nation.

This petition will be delivered to:

President Barack H. Obama
Senator Heidi Heitkamp
Senator John Hoeven
