Boise Idaho Takes Action in Solidarity with Standing Rock

Posted by Ryan Hall
09.20.16

On Monday 12 September 2016 members of Idaho Peace Coalition’s Campaign Nonviolence Idaho 2016 stood in solidarity with members of the Nez Perce, Shoshone Paiute, Shoshone Bannock, Cherokee, Navajo and other tribes from Idaho, California and the Pacific Northwest. Our theme was “Water is Life”. As Members of Idle No More affiliated with our Sisters and Brothers in Canada, a few of our people traveled to North Dakota to be as One in Solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux. There On Sacred Ground we demand: We do not give our permission to Energy Transfer Partners or their affiliates to desecrate our land, violate our burial grounds and pollute our water!

When the last fish is caught and the last stream is poisoned we will realize we cannot eat money!

LaDonna Brave Bull Allard, Tribal Historian, Standing Rock Sioux poignantly states, “I don’t understand why we are expendable in America”.
