i'm under no delusions that i can stop a pipeline
from being built and it has to start somewhere and
it starts with the people
HEATHER ANN WOODS ORGANIZED THIS EVENT.
I don't even like the word organizer because i was
just a mom that wanted to come down with a sign because
i was tired of feeling helpless and hopeless and then
it turned into a thing
WHAT STARTED AS A FACEBOOK POST TURNED INTO THIS GRASSROOTS
Within 6 days it grew from about 10 people to between
interested and going about 800
THIS GROUP SAYS THEY STAND WITH THE STANDING ROCK
FOR MONTHS, THE TRIBE HAS DEMONSTRATED AND FOUGHT
A LEGAL BATTLE AGAINST THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE MORE
THAN THOUSAND MILE LONG PIPELINE.
DEMONSTRATORS FROM ACROSS THE COUNTRY ARE CAMPED OUT
NEAR THE TRIBE'S RESERVATION IN NORTH DAKOTA.

THEY'RE SHOWING SUPPORT AND RAISING AWARENESS.
