Anyone who supports the resistance at Standing Rock is invited to join a march in Yucca Valley this Saturday, January 28. The action is part of a Global Prayer Action focusing on banks that fund the Dakota Access Pipeline.
This week Trump signed executive orders advancing both DAPL and the Keystone XL pipeline. Congressman Paul Cook has supported Keystone in the past and issued a statement on Tuesday in support of Trump’s latest action on Keystone (a statement that has now curiously disappeared from his .gov and Facebook pages).
The march will gather on the frontage road outside Bank of America at the corner of Dumosa and the Highway at noon for a prayer and at 12:30 will march down the block to Wells Fargo and Citibank. According to the United We Rise website, local organizers are the Joshua Tree-Huggers and 350 Joshua Tree.
