This morning, we got incredible news: a federal judge has ordered the Dakota Access Pipeline to be closed and emptied within 30 days because of the inadequacy of its environmental assessments. This is an incredible win for the Standing Rock Sioux, and for the tens of thousands of other Native and nonnative activists who fought the dirty pipeline for years.

Direct action shone the light of the world on DAPL, and legal action tolled its death knell.  This never would have happened without the support of countless people across the country, including here in Seattle, so we must never give up, even when a fight seems over.

Just yesterday, another mega-project, the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, died too — while its supporters made it clear that activists are responsible. “This announcement reflects the increasing legal uncertainty that overhangs large-scale energy and industrial infrastructure development in the United States,” said the chair of the company trying to build it…increasing uncertainty that has developed because of the work of activists nationwide who know that these projects spell doom for our future.

So celebrate!

But we are not done. Don’t forget, just miles from here, Puget Sound Energy is still building its massive Tacoma fracked gas project against the wishes of the Puyallup Tribe. 

To learn how you can help stop it, please join us in a webinar next Thursday, July 16, from noon till 1:30 pm.

When we fight, we win.
