Sept. 22 update: Please note that this event has been POSTPONED. A new date will be announced soon
Across the country communities have been speaking loudly and standing up to support The Standing Rock massive opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline, which would carry the same destructive crude oil fracked in the Bakken Shale that Pilgrim would (if we let it) carry through the pipelines in NY and NJ.
Join The RAMAPOUGH MUNSEE LUNAAPE NATION and CAPP as we take action in solidarity with the historic, indigenous led movement to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline!
The Ramapough Lunaape Nation will host the action Sunday Sept. 25th, co-hosted by CAPP. 11am – 1 pm. at the site of the proposed Pilgrim Bakken pipelines through NY and NJ, which is similar to the Dakota Access pipeline.
We will gather at the Ramapough Lunaape community center (189 Stag Hill Rd, Mahwah, NJ) at 11 am and walk 3/4 of a mile to the site where the proposed Pilgrim Pipeline would cut through sacred Ramapough lands and the water source for millions of people. Once we arrive at the site we will hold a #WaterIsLife ceremony, which will include speakers, drumming and prayer. The Ramapough Luanaape Nation has invited us back to their Community Center afterwards for a BBQ and time of solidarity and support.
Like the Dakota Access Pipeline, the Pilgrim Pipeline would go through Ramapough sacred lands, endanger drinking water for millions, falls under similar regulatory approval process.
We are answering the call to action from Sacred Stone Camp and Red Warrior Camp as they protect water and life from a dangerous Bakken crude pipeline. We will connect the #NoDAPL movement with our struggle to stop the proposed Pilgrim pipelines here in NY and NJ. We are joining over 100 indigenous nations and thousands of people across the continent who are showing up in this historic movement moment for indigenous rights, clean water and climate justice!
For many in New York, it is quite a way to Mahwah and the Ramapough Lunaape land. We can car pool from various points along the proposed route.
Bring your signs, your energy, your passion!
