Call for Support - Stand with Standing Rock - August 30, 2016

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has been locked in a legal battle to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline from impacting it’s cultural, water, and natural resources. The Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) is a 1,168-mile long crude oil pipeline that will transport nearly 570,000 barrels of oil each day from North Dakota to Illinois. The Army Corps of Engineers green-lighted several sections of the process without fully satisfying the National Historic Preservation Act, various environmental statutes, and its trust responsibility to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.

This is another chapter in the long history of the federal government granting the construction of potentially hazardous projects near or through tribal lands, waters, and cultural places without including the tribe. The current proposed pipeline route crosses under Lake Oahe, just a half mile up from the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation.

While the Tribe is waiting for a federal court decision on a preliminary injunction to stop the pipeline construction, the pipeline company is waiting for the Army Corps of Engineers to grant an easement to drill under Lake Oahe. The Army Corps of Engineers, the White House, and Congress must halt the easement because the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s waters and sacred places must be protected.

Find out here what you can do to support the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in its fight to protect its waters and sacred places.

Upcoming events and specially scheduled activities will be posted on this page.

BACP Stands Up for Racial Equality and Justice

Martin Luther King Day and Black Lives Matter Vigil at Bank Square, Little Falls - Jan. 18, 2016

Vigil at Bank Square, downtown Little Falls, intersection of Hwy 27 (Broadway Ave.) and First Street (where we met all years past) at 1 pm-2 pm.

Vigil on Saturday, December 13, 2014

Brainerd Area Coalition for Peace (BACP) held a vigil against police brutality in solidarity with national protests against police brutality, including a major demonstration in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, December 13.

The vigil demanded an end to police brutality and racial profiling and that police officers who commit police brutality be held legally accountable. The vigil opposed the militarization of the police force and protested disparities in justice based on class, race, and ethnicity.

The vigil also supported strong reforms to the criminal justice system against police brutality, racial profiling, harsh prison sentences for non-violent offenses, solitary confinement, and institutional bias in the justice system based on class, race, and ethnicity. The vigil supported justice for police brutality victims.

 Lending Library: We have available for lending a number of resources: books, DVDs, CDs, documentaries.
