As we stood in support of Lakota Water Protector and mother, HolyElk Lafferty, 210,000 gallons of oil spilled onto Mother Earth due to the negligence of the Keystone Pipeline. HolyElk faces charges related to her arrest on 1868 treaty land, during the fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline. Its time to stop believing the oil companies when they guarantee that these pipelines are safe and present no threat to our water and land. We continue to stand with all water protectors as they deal with unjust charges for protecting our water and land for future generations. Thank you to the Lakota People's Law Project for their continued support.
