This just in from the Sierra Club on Standing Rock:
History made! The Obama administration just announced that it will not grant the final easement for the Dakota Access Pipeline! Instead, the Army Corps of Engineers will conduct an environmental review and explore alternate routes for the project, away from the Missouri River crossing which would impact Tribal land and cultural resources.

Under this announcement, Energy Transfer Partners must stop construction of the pipeline on the Standing Rock Sioux’s ancestral homelands until an environmental review has been conducted that includes public input.

The fight to reject the Dakota Access Pipeline isn’t over and we aren’t going to back down until this pipeline is rejected once and for all, but the administration’s announcement today ensures Energy Transfer Partners can’t continue its assault on the Standing Rock Sioux’s ancestral homelands. This couldn’t have happened without the Standing Rock Sioux and the Water Protectors standing up for what’s right and solidarity from millions of Americans. Sierra Club supporters like you made an unprecedented 20,000 calls and sent 115,000 letters to the White House last month alone on this issue.

Here’s what’s on the agenda so far for our December 15 meeting at 6 p.m. at the Blue Scorcher .
