Win!!! Two days after our DAPL petition delivery BANK DNB SELLS IT'S INTEREST IN DAPL & Army Wants Further Study Of Dakota Access Pipeline Route 18&14NOV16
DAPL protest continue at Standing Rock in N Dakota as well as across the country and world. Norwegian Bank DNB was convinced it's involvement in DAPL was morally wrong because of a massive international petition campaign and is selling off it's investment in the project. This is a huge victory, one of more to come. From +Us @ SumOfUs ....
It’s clear our message is having an impact., we delivered hundreds of thousands of signatures right to the Bank’s offices in Norway, and thousands of us flooded its Facebook page with messages in support of the Standing Rock Sioux Nation.
The Chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Council sent us this note:
We are pleased that Bank DNB is weakening its ties to DAPL. It was a wise decision, especially given Energy Transfer Partners’ continuous disregard for our land, water, and sovereignty. Recent comments by Energy Transfer Partners CEO indicate the company seems intent on ramping up aggression, which is why it is of the utmost importance that other banks follow the example of DNB.
This major milestone could only happen because all around the world, people like you stood in support of the Standing Rock Sioux and the courageous water defenders on the ground right now in North Dakota.
But our fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline is not over yet -- we have plans to force other banks to pull out of DAPL, and we promise we won’t stop until we win.
