Bernie Sanders speaking at a recent Washington DC NO Pipeline rally.

I hope you will be among the first to sign this petition. I n addition to the Senators I have written about already in this context (Sanders, Heinrich, Reid, Udall, Franken, and Booker), we must also include the top 3 Democratic Leadership Senators, plus North Dakota's Heidi Heitkamp, Washington's Maria Cantwell, and Montana's Jon Tester, and and incoming California US Senator Kamala Harris. We need all of them to be unequivocally part of the solution not the problem.

For more impact, you are most welcome to add comments when you sign the petition that are directed to these Senators, and we hope to publish compilations of your comments at OpEdNews, as I have done in the past.

This is the title: U.S. Senators, Please Intervene to Protect Standing Rock Defenders


This petition will be periodically presented to these Senators. Here is the URL:

Please sign this petition, as well as share it widely, especially to groups, thus we WILL make the difference and bring change.

I also encourage you to write and call both of your Senators, in addition to the ones on this petition, and particularly if they are in the Republican Majority in the United States Senate; they need to hear from us, too!

I look forward to knowing your ideas and insights. Feel free to contact me directly at: Email address

Thank you very much from Stephen Fox in Santa Fe, New Mexico

The petition has been out only a few hours and here are some of the most striking comments thus far:

Kevin Gilbert from Mankato, MN (this is the fellow who filmed the extraordinary footage the night they used water cannons and tear gas on the Water Defenders who were trapped on the bridge, and the night that Sophia Wilansky's arm was almost blown off, and may still yet be amputated)

Speaking to the Senators directly: Please come and lend your support.

I hope in due course all the signers will realize that you can't ignore the Majority Party in the US Senate and that there must be dialogue and rapprochement, that old Cold War Term. At this moment, 1027 have signed this, and it has only been out about two hours!

Me too. We have to try, and in both politics and in government, there are always tradeoffs and compromise. I liked what Bernie had to say about Carrier yesterday, which made the front page of our local Santa Fe New Mexican (Oldest paper in the West, by the way!). Did you see it? There are probably more thorough versions in other papers, but here is this:

Maybe not for the moveOn petition, but I should have mentioned earlier that petitions also placed on Care2 will get 100,000 more signatures

I have one there at Care2 also but moveon.org has certain features like encouraging emails to the signers, stating their last name instead of putting Catherine M. for example, something I find rather adolescent. I have worked with moveon.org before on that repeat of the NY primary petition, and this one in less than 18 hours has almost 1600 signatures.


I appreciate your insights, but for my purpose, to have a large and focused group ready to act, write letters, phone calls, etc., only a quick email away to the whole group: that is what is needed in this context, and that is why I am focused on Moveon org much more. For example, the Tribal Chairman of the SR Sioux has one directed to Obama to kill the pipeline that about half million have signed.


They are also much faster to respond to answer questions. Some of the really big names in petitions like change.org have no telephone number listed anywhere.


This situation and my needs in creating the petition rather dictated the choice, and it was an easy choice, believe me; the subtitle below says it all....Catherine, have you written and called your two Senators yet?
