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.
