Solidarity Trip to Standing Rock 2

We will soon return to Standing Rock to stand with those resisting the Dakota Access Pipeline, bring more supplies, and continue documenting the movement and occupation.

Since our last trip in September, the occupation has expanded, as has the militarized police repression of those protecting their lands and waters. Upon returning to New York we presented on the movement at the School of Visual Arts and Topos.

We could use additional support this time for new van rental, gas, supplies, and food. Anything is appreciated. Thanks to all who already contributed.

9/19:
This week we will visit Standing Rock to show our support, deliver requested supplies, and to help document this historic show of resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Since the Fall of 2014 we have been working on a multi-media documentary project, The Native and the Refugee, looking at contemporary resistance movements on American Indian reservations, and putting them in dialogue with their counterparts in Palestinian refugee camps. We have spent time at Pine Ridge, Akwesasne, Navajo Nation, and Lummi, as well as Palestinian camps in Lebanon, Jordan, and the West Bank, where we have organized screenings and presentations of our project to facilitate this dialogue.

Now we feel we must visit Standing Rock, to contribute and take part in everything that’s happening, and support our friends who are currently there who have requested our help and presence. We want to make sure their voices are heard, and to show people what life in the camps is like at this moment.

We’ve already spent all of our money on our film, but know that visiting Standing Rock is a must at this time. We need your support to help us rent a car, pay for gas, and to bring food and supplies to the site.
