Amazon Watch is honored to join many organizations and individuals rising in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, Indigenous Environmental Network, the Native Organizers Alliance, and indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island (North America) as they converged on D.C. to hold a tipi camp this week near the Washington Monument and will march tomorrow by the thousands.
We will join with our indigenous allies who demand that indigenous rights be respected, that consent is given when any economic development happens on their lands, and that President Trump meet with tribal leaders so he can be accountable for the impact of his actions. We march because we know that indigenous rights mean climate justice.
It's our duty to continue our solidarity and stand with all indigenous communities who are fighting to defend their land, water, and rights.
See you at the tipi camp and in the streets!
