From May 20th till June 20th 2017, their passage through Europe will be the occasion to demand that european banks divest from an array of projects which are devastating for the climate and violate the First Nations Rights on the Turtle Island (North America); and to manifest once again the european peoples’ firm opposition to Trump’s criminal climate policies. With non-violent actions of civil disobedience, conferences, debates, and also hip-hop concerts, informal exchanges and conviviality, the tour aims to participate in the building of a global force which commits itself to climate justice, and to oppose fascism and neoliberalism.

Standing Rock Water Protectors tour in the Netherlands.

Across the Standing Rock Reserve, the heartland of the original American Sioux tribe, an oil pipeline is being constructed, threatening access to clean water for many. There is a strong opposition among the residents. In the Netherlands there are also fights against fossil fuel energy, damage to buildings through gas extraction and nuclear power plants. Connect with activists from Standing Rock during a tour across the Netherlands.
