This infographic shows who the investors in the Dakota Access Pipeline are, and what companies are involved in this environmental tragedy. The Dakota Access Pipeline threatens the safety and tribal sovereignty of the Standing Rock Sioux, and these companies should be considered to be enemies of not only the Sioux Nation but all of us.
Please use this information wisely and effectively. One suggestion I might have is to stage a boycott against these companies. Even though boycotts are a strategy that was used in the 60s and many people don’t seem to have the patience to go without a particular product, I believe that boycotts can be an effective tool to affect social change. We must all do everything we can to curtail the profits from the Dakota Access Pipeline. One strategy that seems to be having some effect is the movement towards pressuring various banks into divesting themselves of interest in the Dakota Access Pipeline.
After looking at this infographic, I can see that the Marathon oil company is one of the investors. Marathon is a common brand of gasoline in various parts of the country. Perhaps you could try boycotting Marathon and use another brand of gasoline for your car. Just an idea!
These investors in the Dakota Access Pipeline should be considered as enemies of the people. They stand to profit, while the rest of us lose.
