Sunday December 4th @6pm (Recorded episode included)
On this episode of RadioActive we took a broad look at what is happening in Standing Rock and the #NoDAPL movement from the perspective of water science – looking to the potential impacts of the Dakota Access Pipeline on the Missouri River and surrounding watershed.We also went live mere hours after it was announed that the Army Corps of Engineers denied the permit to cross the Missouri River in Standing Rock and therefore blocking construction of #DAPL (for now) making for a much more celebratory tone than expected!
I was joined in studio by Jennifer Veilleux, a Post-Doctoral Fellow from the Institute for Water and Environment at FIU, who discussed her work on water security and water science globally including projects in Tanzania, the Nile, and her most recent work on the Missouri River in partnership with North Dakota Tribal leaders and water protectors.
During our broadcast we said we would share resources with you as they came up during the show – if I miss any let me know and I will add to this list.
- ‘Stand up – Stand N Rock’ with Taboo and Native leaders
- Jennifer’s work on the Missouri River Basin
- The Sable Pipline Protest happening right here in Florida (this issue is not unique to North Dakota)
- Veterans arrive in Standing Rock – Check out this Video on how to be a part of the peaceful indigenous led movement
- What YOU can do to support standing rock (and other movements for soverignty and environmental justice)
- And news from other countries – Justin Trudeau from Canada has approved two pipelines one being its own DAPL: the Kinder Morgan Pipeline
