Support HR 676

As more and more signs point towards the government trying to strong-arm Dakota Access Pipeline protectors and activists in the coming days, a movement called Veterans Stand for Standing Rock plan on lending their help and their bodies.

The real measure of election integrity is that every eligible American can cast a vote that is counted. But this fundamental right is being threatened in the 2016 elections. Fourteen states will have new laws cutting back on voting rights and access in place for the first time in a presidential election.

A pipeline rupture earlier this month in North Dakota is now revealed to have spilled a possible record-setting amount of "brine" created as a byproduct of oil drilling, with the full impacts of the incident still unknown.

Worse Than Keystone

This is land that has been in my family for decades. It is prime Red River Valley agriculture land. It was handed down to me by my mother and father when they passed away, and I’m intending to hand it down to my children when I pass away. Of course, if thousands of barrels of oil burst through this thing, that is the end of the family legacy.

—James Botsford, whose land lies along the proposed route of Enbridge’s Sandpiper Pipeline Project
