Solidarity with Standing Rock – No Dakota Access Pipeline

SF March Focuses on Army Corps of Engineers’ Role

A thousand people joined a colorful and buoyant march through San Francisco on Tuesday, November 15 – an international day of solidarity with those protecting water and land rights around the Dakota Access Pipe Line (DAPL).

Over a hundred risked arrest, blocking the street and entrances around the Army Corps of Engineers’ office on Market Street, a major down thoroughfare. Police declined to make arrests, and news arrived that the ACE had issued a statement at Standing Rock accepting the need for “additional discussion and analysis.” (See UK Guardian link below for news updates).

After two hours blockading, the marchers, led by Indigenous groups, marched back to Civic Center to complete the day’s activities.
