We are Mississippi Stand! We are standing in solidarity with Standing Rock, for all people to have clean drinking water. We are trying to end eminent domain abuse. We are trying to get the attention of our lawmakers and media, to shine a light on this important issue.
Our camp was started by Jessica Reznicek in August 2016 as a sole occupant, fighting to shut down the Dakota Access Pipeline. She has since invited others to join her, in hopes of estabishing a 24/7 presence at the entrance to one of the DAPL construction sites.
As the camp grows, so does our need for supplies. The money donated here will be used to purchase community services and resources, including portable restroom service, blankets, firewood, etc.
The funds are needed immediately. This is a current and ongoing occupation. Patrick Stall, our financial manager, will be in charge of using these funds for our camp and our supplies.
We are grateful for any support that you provide. While there are many people standing up for this cause, there are still more people who are unaware of the dire importance of this issue.
