Tribal Nations Unite to Blockade

“Shana hopes that anyone who cannot be at the blockade tonight will spread word of their plight via social media, thereby helping them to garner more support and put pressure on tribal leadership to act quickly.”

LastRealIndians posted an article that speaks of the immediate actions taken by the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation (CTUIR) in stopping shipping company Omega Morgan from transporting mega loads of equipment through their tribal homelands. You may have heard, but Tribal Nations in the Northwest (Canada) are taking action and joining forces in order to stop fracking and destruction all together. Right now, they need your moral, political, and online support!
