November 26, 2016 – It was a sorrow-filled so-called "Thanksgiving" at Standing Rock as the Indigenous peoples and Water Protectors kept their vigil against the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) in spite of unspeakable police violence. There were unrelenting assaults against the human rights of these peaceful demonstrators.
And frankly, there was nothing to be thankful for except the courage of the Earth and Water Protectors as well as others engaged in peaceful protest.Read more

The indigenous water protectors and land defenders at Standing Rock are on the front line of the #NoDAPL struggle. They have issued a call for solidarity, support, and supplies, and the Stein/Baraka campaign and the Green Party of the United States has answered the call. Green Party co-chair and Stein/Baraka staffer Andrea Mérida Cuellar and Dawn Neptune Adams, an indigenous woman from the Penobscot tribe and member of the Maine Independent Green Party executive committee, and several members of the Colorado Green Party arrived in Standing Rock on Friday, November 4, to support the encampment and direct actions of the water protectors.
"Colorado Greens gathered crucial supplies to support the front line water defenders, from pepper spray remedies to food to warm winter clothing," said Cuellar. "Among us is a union teacher, Peggy Robertson of United Opt Out and a Green, who with her son Sam is rebuilding and restocking the camp school and will teach, in the style of Oaxacan teachers. We are all standing at the ready to serve and take full direction from the Indigenous leaders on the ground," she added.Read more

Cleveland OH: The Green Party of Ohio is urging the voters of Youngstown, Ohio to support Charter Amendment Number 6, otherwise known as the Community Bill of Rights in the election to be held on November 8th. This amendment would codify the right of the citizens of Youngstown to enjoy the benefits of clean water, air and soil and give them the right of local control in matters of the procedure known as fracking and the disposal of wastes that are the end result of fracking.
The amendment would ban the city government or any corporation from engaging in fracking or disposing of fracking wastes within the city limits. It would also hold accountable the parties engaging in fracking on properties adjacent to the city of Youngstown, including the Meander Creek Reservoir. This reservoir contains the water supply for the city of Youngstown as well as other area municipalities.Read more
