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.
