Today, Tuesday February 7, the US Army Corps gave notice of intent to grant the final easement for the Dakota Access Pipeline to cross the Mni Sose (Missouri River). They are skipping the EIS ordered in December, and skipping the congressional notification period required by law. This is a response to President Trump’s Presidential Memorandum directing the Corps to expedite approval of the project.
The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe will likely sue and ask for a temporary restraining order to halt construction while the legality of this decision is reviewed in court. In the meantime, DAPL will likely start drilling immediately.
WORLDWIDE CALL TO ACTION FEB. 8
The Indigenous Coalition at Standing Rock is calling for February 8th to be an international day of emergency actions to disrupt business as usual and unleash a global intersectional resistance to fossil fuels and fascism.
Statement from Tom Goldtooth, Executive Director of the Indigenous Environmental Network:
“…“The granting of this easement goes against protocol, it goes against legal process, it disregards more than 100,000 comments already submitted as part of the not-yet-completed environmental review process — all for the sake of Donald Trump’s billionaire big oil cronies. And, it goes against the treaty rights of the entire Seven Councils Fires of the Sioux Nations.
“Donald Trump has not met with a single Native Nation since taking office. Our tribal nations and Indigenous grassroots peoples on the frontlines have had no input on this process. We support the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, and stand with them at this troubling time….”

Friday, 7:00pm, Trump’s Foreign Policy: Where is it leading?
2969 Mission St
Trump’s agenda at home is rapidly shaping up to be an all-sided attack on the working class and people’s democratic rights. What about foreign policy? Trump and his administration have already taken very belligerent positions toward China, Iran, Cuba, Mexico, the Palestinian people and others. While seemingly taking a less aggressive position toward Russia, clearly a key element of that tactic is to drive a wedge between China and Russia. His immigration ban has created outrage around the world as well as inside the U.S.
Sponsor: Party for Socialism and Liberation
Friday, 7:00pm, Fundraiser for #NoDAPL & Climate Activist
Join us for a provocative and exciting discussion with the climate activists who shut down five tar sands oil pipelines located in four states.
They shut down 15% of US crude oil imports for nearly a day. And face up to 90 years in jail.
Their action was done in solidarity with the struggle against the Dakota Access Pipeline.
As they prepare for court, they’ll speak with us about strategy and share their journey and the love that inspired them.

Saturday, 3:30pm – 5:30pm, Trump First 100 Days: Planning Meeting for A29 Bay Area Mobilization
Taylor Memorial United Methodist Church
1188 12th Street
Pat St Onge (Six Nations) will facilitate as we generate ideas for an event on April 29 that reflects the creativity and urgency of social and environmental justice movements. All voices must be heard, particularly those historically silenced.
Background: The coalition of organizations that sponsored the hugely successful 2014 People’s Climate March in NYC has issued a call for a campaign that begins with the inauguration and concludes on April 29th with a mass demonstration in Washington, DC. While their emphasis is getting the largest possible turnout to the Capitol on April 29th, it is unlikely that very many people from the West Coast will be able to get to DC, so we plan to organize a parallel event of our own in the Bay Area
Please join this meeting to plan the Bay Area April 29th event/action. We are a large coalition. Please send a representative from your organization, union, faith community, neighborhood group, etc. We welcome everyone to get involved.
Sponsor: A29 Bay Area Mobilization
