Portland Action with Standing Rock Sacred Stone Camp Resistance to Dakota Access Pipeline

What is happening in Portland, Sept. 9th to express solidarity with and support for all Native American nations, Black Lives Matters, and the 15 million-plus people whose drinking water is at risk for being poisoned at public expense if the Dakota Access Pipeline is completed? Who is organizing what, when, where, and will there be collection sites for donating water,food, satellite transmitters, tents and sleeping bags/pads, first-aid, solar cells and solar cell phone chargers, etc. ? Who is collecting cash that will actually and completely get to Sacred Stone Camp via Standing Rock Sioux Tribe?
Here is general information about Sacred Rock Camp nonviolent resistance to the Dakota Access (oil) Pipeline illegal construction that will endanger the drinking water of over 15 million people and today's burial grounds destruction of the Standing Rock Sioux. This is the site where the US military killed about 400 Native Americans on their land earlier. Today the pipeline company has used vicious dogs, pepper spray, tear gas, etc. as they bulldozed and destroyed sacred burial sites and cultural treasures, including uncovering skeletons in an apparent attempt to provoke an excuse for more violence when the North Dakota governor called in the National Guard. Now there are over 100 different tribes or nations as well as Black Lives Matter representatives at Sacred Rock, for nonviolent and prayerful ceremonies and solidarity for racial, environmental, religious, economic justice. Sept. 9th or before then, the judge will give a decision on whether the US Army of Engineers can continue the destruction and drinking water harm. See updates on the peaceful protesters arrested but not the violent criminals.

All of us who care about human and nonhuman lives, safety, health, and integrity, as well as democracy or self-rule and just government, climate justice, etc., care deeply and want to help support environmental, economic, racial, social justice, particularly at Sacred Rock Camp.

Since the US military began doing mass incarceration in outdoor prison camps and indoor prisons and mass murder of Native Americans and black slave labor, Sept. 9th is also the day of national prison solidarity actions called by Strike Against Police Terror.

The strike, which starts officially on September 9th, the 45th anniversary of the Attica Uprising, is historic. The strike is being led by groups such as the Free Alabama Movement, Free Texas Movement, Free Ohio Movement, Free Virginia Movement, Free Mississippi Movement, and many more. Prisoners have asked that supporters hold noise demonstrations outside jails and prisons, protest, disrupt, and demonstrate outside of corporations that profit from prison labor, and also support the strike that is happening across the US.

On Friday, September 9th, people across Portland and Northwest will converge in Downtown Portland in solidarity with the US wide prison work strike against prison slavery and white supremacy. Our goal is a mass showing of support with the growing prison rebellion in the US and to also march on the corporations in the Downtown area that make massive profits off of prisoner enslavement.

Slavery is legal in America. Written into the 13th Amendment, it is legal to work someone that is incarcerated for free or almost free. Since the civil war, tens of millions of people most arrested for non-violent offenses, have been used as slaves for the sake of generating massive profits for multi-national corporations and the US government. Today, prison labor is a multi-billion dollar industry which helps generate enormous wealth for key industries such as fossil fuels, fast food, telecommunications, technology, the US military, and everyday house hold products.

The strike, which starts officially on September 9th, the 45th anniversary of the Attica Uprising, is historic. The strike is being led by groups such as the Free Alabama Movement, Free Texas Movement, Free Ohio Movement, Free Virginia Movement, Free Mississippi Movement, and many more. Prisoners have asked that supporters hold noise demonstrations outside jails and prisons, protest, disrupt, and demonstrate outside of corporations that profit from prison labor, and also support the strike that is happening across the US.

This is not just a prison strike for better wages or conditions, it is a strike against white supremacy itself.

Bring banners, signs, noise makers, friends, co-workers, neighbors, family members, and more! Gather at Chapman Square ( SW 4th and Main), 2pm. From there we will march to prison profiteer in Portland and end back at Chapman Square for a Noize Demonstration at the "Justice Center" where we will send our sounds of love and solidarity to all those trapped in the white supremacist state's cages.

Also, be sure to join us for an informational session on August 25th. See more info on that here:  https://www.facebook.com/events/610693729109910/
