Monday, December 5 at 3:30 PM – 6 PM: Evict Them, Face Us – Stand-In/Sit-In

 

We will gather on the 5th of December to express our solidarity with the first Americans who fight for us at Standing Rock.
On that day, the Army Corps of Engineers plans to raid the camps at Standing Rock.
We will not be silent this time, we will not simply accept the outcome. This is our land, our future, and our country. We gather in peace against their violence, against their greed, and against their aggression.
When you threaten one of us, you will face all of us.
