Idle No More SF Bay and Tribal Nations in the west are in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and Indigenous grassroots leaders who are calling on our allies across the United States and around the world to peacefully March for Native American rights on March 10th. We ask that you rise in solidarity with the Indigenous peoples of the world whose rights protect Mother Earth for the future generations of all.
The march will begin at 5:00 p.m. at the Federal Building at 7th & Mission. There will be a short rally there before the march to the Civic Center. The rally at the Civic Center will include a traditional California Indigenous opening with Corrina Gould, speakers on the history of Native Americans and the Federal Government, Native American leaders, and others.
This event is co-sponsored by Idle No More SF Bay and the International Indian Treaty Council.
#TakeTheMeeting // President Trump must meet with tribal leaders to hear why it’s critical that the US government respect tribal rights. This administration must work with us.
#ConsentNotConsultation // Tribal interests cannot continue to be marginalized in favor of the interests of corporations and other governments. Consultation is not enough– we must require consent.
#NativeNationsRise // The Standing Rock movement is bigger than one tribe. It has evolved into a powerful global phenomenon highlighting the necessity to respect Indigenous Nations and their right to protect their homelands, environment and future generations. We are asking our Native relatives from across Turtle Island to rise with us.

Rise with Standing Rock on Friday, March 10th in San Francisco
The Standing Rock movement is bigger than one tribe and one pipeline. It’s about respecting Indigenous Nations and their right to protect their homelands, environment and future generations.
Earlier this month, the order to evacuate the main camp at Standing Rock took effect — perpetuating a shameful history of the U.S. government pushing Indigenous Peoples off their land. But it’s not the end of this fight or our movement.
Beginning on March 7th, Indigenous Peoples from across Turtle Island (North America) will hold a tipi camp near the Washington Monument culminating on March 10th when thousands of Indigenous Peoples and their allies will march in Washington D.C. with sister marches happening around the country.
We will march to demand that Indigenous rights be respected, that tribal consent is given when any economic development happens on tribal land, and that President Trump meet with Tribal Leaders so he can be accountable for the impact of his actions.
Here are the details:

The fire that Standing Rock started burns within each of us. That’s why the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, Indigenous Environmental Network, Native Organizers Alliance among many others are inviting everyone to join them for this mass demonstration to build on the momentum from Standing Rock.
To all of those who were spurred to action because of this fight, we need you now more than ever. It’s our duty to follow through with our solidarity and stand with all Indigenous communities who are fighting to defend their land, water, and rights.
Let’s rise, let’s resist, let’s thrive.
See you in the streets on
