Still Standing

Last month, we told you why OCA was going all out to support the water protectors at Standing Rock, N.D.

This week, we’re happy to report that we far exceeded our goal of raising $4,000—which we then matched, for a total of $8,000—for food and other supplies desperately needed for those occupying the camp. We will continue to raise money for this cause. Because the crimes against the people of Standing Rock are crimes against us all.

In our video of the week, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. gives a crystal-clear explanation of why Energy Transfer Partners is so desperate to build this pipeline—the reason may surprise you. Kennedy also reiterates that while the “protestors” are being treated like criminals, it’s the energy company that is actually breaking the law.
