Kansas City Native American Activists Tout City Hall Solidarity With Standing Rock



The protests at Standing Rock have resonated among Kansas City progressives who plan to push their support of this movement after the election.

Resolution #160804 is going before the Neighborhoods and Public Safety Committee on Nov. 9. If the committee votes to pass it, it will then be directed to the full City Council, including Mayor Sly James.

The latest call to action from this group: 

"Join us Kansas City and take your stand against the Dakota Access Pipeline #nodapl. We will rally outside City Hall, South Entrance, starting at 8am. Bring your signs, banners, drums, sage, prayers, song and dance. The City Council is considering a Resolution #160804 — KC granting a Letter of Solidarity with Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in opposition of the Dakota Access Pipeline and protecting our Missouri River."

A protest in Kansas City is planned for the morning of Wednesday, November 9 at City Hall steps.

Lots of interest in this on FB but that doesn't always translate to real world support.

You decide . . .

With 103 and counting murders in KC and considering it's only the first week of November, you'd think maybe the electeds would be able to find other priorities than silly pointless resolutions on the latest trendy "issues", but that would require some actual effort and assumption of responsibility.
What facts does the council actually have about the pipeline issue?
The circus needs more rings.

Oil was the first international export the US ever had. Military intelligence worked it's way in with Allen Dulles and by the Cold War countries were being over taken. This global economy has taken over the world and is about to destroy it. In 30 years we'll be lucky to have horses.

Saving all this old shit that no one actually cares about is right up there with KC pale faces watching their money flow into 18th and Vine. Of course in KC the peckerwoods are too lazy to vote or offer up any resistance to the crap that goes on. Must still be getting over the ass kicking at Little Big Horn.
