Stand with Standing Rock

Jefferson County will host a march Friday in Port Townsend to protest the Dakota Access pipeline that will cut through part of a Sioux Reservation in North Dakota.  Carmen Bitzer is one of the march organizers and it will start at 2 p.m. at the corner of Lawrence and Walker next to the fire station, then proceed down Lawrence Street towards Pope Marine Park on Water Street.  The rally is a sister march of one in Washington, DC led by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, the Indigenous Environmental Network and the Native Organizers Alliance.
