Local Groups Show Support For Standing Rock Protestors
Several local groups are holding a supply drive for protestors decrying a proposed oil pipeline that would run through four states, including Native American land considered sacred. The ‘water protectors’ also believe the pipeline will put drinking water and surrounding lands at risk for pollution.
Locally, the Children’s Montessori Cooperative and representatives from Antioch College are joining together to collect supplies and equipment for the protestors. To get the details on the effort, WYSO's Jerry Kenney spoke with Isaac DeLamatre of Antioch College.
