Standing Rock Sioux Issue Urgent Call to Action on DAPL Environmental Impact Statement

30-day public comment period on DAPL EIS now open; public urged to participate

With President Donald Trump’s signing of presidential memos to fast-track review and development of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) and Keystone XL, the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and its supporters say it’s more important now than ever for people throughout the country who are opposed to DAPL to register their disapproval with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

The Army Corps of Engineers on January 18 date initiated its Environmental Impact Statement, part of which involves a 30-day period in which the Corps invites members of the public to weigh in on the project. The public has until February 20 to comment about the environmental impacts of DAPL at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers website. With less that 28 days to go, organizers say that now is the now is the chance for people nationwide to speak up.

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has set up an easy-to-use page for submitting comments.

“While the EIS is exactly what we called for, we must ensure that it fully takes into consideration tribal treaty rights, natural resources, cultural and sacred places, socio-economical concerns, and environmental justice,” the tribe said in a statement on January 18. “We need your continued support as this process moves forward. Submit a comment to the Civil Works Division, and help us show the Army that #MillionsStandWithStandingRock.”

The more comments, the more time it will take to go through them, and the more information the ACOE will have at its disposal in order to make an assessment.

“You need to flood the Army Corps of Engineers with as many comments as possible during this comment period,” said Anthony Rogers-Wright, an environmental activist and former adviser to Senator Bernie Sanders during his presidential campaign, to The Young Turks. “This is really a propaganda temper tantrum of what he would like to happen. But there is still law that he has to follow.”
