THE STORY:

Dear friends,

I think many of us are feeling that we are standing at a historic moment, a time when we feel compelled to do our part. This is what got me to join the Berta Vive Delegation to Standing Rock last month to stand in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux and other Native peoples who have come in unprecedented unity to protect the water. It was also a stand for human rights, the environment and environmental justice.

In the short time since we were there, police repression has intensified to obscene levels. Our original intent was to raise the money for winterization of the camp but it is also needed now for legal fees and medical costs. 

This fundraiser is a team effort to raise $12k in 5 days. The Chinese Progressive Association (CAP) will send the money to the Indigenous Environmental Network (IEN). For my part, my goal is to raise $450 or more. As a way of showing gratitude I have five hand-printed silk-screened posters - kindly donated by San Francisco artist Juan Fuentes - to give one each to the five highest donors at the end of the campaign. Copies of these posters were given as gifts to local tribal leaders during our visit and presentation at Standing Rock. Please scroll to the end of the photos at the top of the page to see the image. 

Thank you, in advance, for your caring and concern,

Leon
