I Stand With Standing Rock. Water Is Life.
The only way that Natives have been able to overcome is through public unity in the past for their cause, so please stand with them now! You can make a difference! The United States has built itself up by talking about ‘American Values’ and there is nothing more un-American than what the United States Government is doing in conjunction with large corporations to Native Americans right now.
The best way to help is to stay informed, spread the word, donate, show solidarity, to keep talking about it, because believe me, it can make all the difference in the world!
This goes beyond Water Is Life, but Water Is Life is where we’re starting for this worldwide collective consciousness that has risen for Native American rights.
If you have any information to add please list in comments and I will update….

Vanessa Dundon (Sioux Z) (Severely Injured Water Protector)

During the action on November 20 at the Backwater bridge, she was shot in the eye with a tear gas canister 6 feet away. It was aimed directly at her face by a Morton County officer. She was seen at Bismark Sanford hospital and released because she had no insurance. She has a detached retina and needs surgery to ensure her vision. She is now seeking medical attention in Fargo. Donations will be used for the cost of the 2 ER visits, surgery, medications, and recovery.”

Her eye was so damaged that they don’t think they can do anything at this point. When she is able we will do a video with more details. Please keep her in your prayers.”

Sophia Wilanksy (Severely Injured Water Protector)
- “HOW IS #SOPHIA WILANSKYSophia Wilansky is a water protector from New York. She left New York City several weeks ago to help with the struggle at Standing Rock. She been an active participate and family to the activist groups NYC Shut It Down and Hoods4Justice. Sophia has always been committed to confronting injustice through vigilance and resistance.
Sophia was giving out bottles of water to protectors holding down the space when she was shot with a concussion grenade. This was the response of police and DAPL mercenaries as she and other brave protectors attempted to hold the line against the black snake in service of protecting our water. As of last night, we found out she was air lifted to County Medical Center in Minneapolis were she’s currently undergoing extensive, hours-long surgery from injuries sustained from the blast.
Please consider donating to help pay for her treatment. We must to support our comrades when they need us the most. She needs all of us right now. After all she is our family.
My name is Michael Basillas, I live in NYC. Sophia Wilansky is a fierce friend of mine. We’ve known each other for almost a year now from participation in various demonstrations focused in the city. Sophia and I share passion addressing social justice, vigilance, and resistance , and understanding this world is unsuitable and required drastic change. Sophia is family to many affinity activism groups from The Base, NYC Shut It Down, and HOODS4JUSTICE. I’m this money with the help of several other people to provide medical relief funds after what had happen on Nov 21, 2016.
HOW THE MONEY WILL BE SPEND:
Funds raised in this campaign will go directly to provide financial aid towards 20 surgeries Sophia needs to save her arm. Funds also provide Sophia’s father some financial support to take care of his daughter. Their insurance will not cover all of the expenses and can only cover a certain percentage of it especially with this type of surgery. So we are asking to donate gracefully because this will help provide financial support toward Sophia’s long recovery.
HOW THE MONEY WILL BE USED
$20,000 will be used from GO FUND ME to be used as a financial cushion for both the father Mr Wayne Wilansky and Sophia for the next several days. The rest of the money will be delivered to Mr. Wilansky when he gets back one in NYC.”

Mission StatementThe Indigenous Peoples of the Americas have lived for over 500 years in confrontation with an immigrant society that holds an opposing world view. As a result we are now facing an environmental crisis which threatens the survival of all natural life.

The Indigenous Peoples of the Americas have lived for over 500 years in confrontation with an immigrant society that holds an opposing world view. As a result we are now facing an environmental crisis which threatens the survival of all natural life.
We believe in unified action, sharing of information, and working together with mutual respect. We recognize we must assert our sovereignty and jurisdictional rights through the application of our traditional laws and recognizing our traditional forms of leadership of our indigenous nations. We stand on principles of empowering and supporting each other to take direct, informed action and affect our ability to protect our lands from contamination and exploitation. By attempting to fulfill our responsibility to defend our mother earth we are assuring the survival of our unborn generations.
The members of IEN are unified in our recognition that the traditional teachings, lifestyles, spirituality, cultures and leadership of our people as well as the survival of our future generations, are entirely dependent upon our respectful relationship with the natural world and our responsibility to the sacred principles given to us by the creator.

- “Waterkeeper Alliance strengthens and grows a global network of grassroots leaders protecting everyone’s right to clean water.”
- “Our story started in 1966 when commercial and recreational fishermen, many of them veterans, united to save their river and formed the Hudson River Fishermen’s Association. These fishermen recognized that outspoken, citizen-led advocacy was the only way to ensure that laws were enforced and their river, livelihood and the health of their families were protected. They took on many of the nation’s biggest industrial polluters and won.In 1983, they hired the first full-time Hudson Riverkeeper to patrol the river, to restore its abundant fisheries and to lead citizen-based enforcement of environmental laws. Since those early days, Hudson Riverkeeper has brought hundreds of polluters to justice and forced them to spend hundreds of millions of dollars restoring the Hudson to health. Their success spurred an explosive growth of similar grassroots programs across the globe, and in 1999 Waterkeeper Alliance was founded to support these programs.
Today, Waterkeeper Alliance is the world’s fastest growing environmental movement, with over 240 Waterkeeper Organizations protecting rivers, lakes and coastal waterways on six continents. Our proudest accomplishment is the depth and breadth of our member organizations and the unity of their vision for clean water and strong communities.
Our Support team has helped many prospective Waterkeeper organizations through the proposal process and has networked with a number of grassroots water advocacy groups both domestically and internationally.”
