Dimas Pandu will be joining over 2,000 veterans who are converging on North Dakota next week to stand with the Indian Tribes against the Dakota Access Pipeline. Randy served in the US Air Force from 2006 to 2012 and is an Iraq & Afghanistan combat veteran.
Randy's been told airfare will be provided so that'll be covered. But its cold and snowing in North Dakota and Randy needs a winter parka, clothing, undergarments, sub-zero sleeping bag, protective shielding, and provisions. As a graduate student at Hawaii Pacific University Dimas needs your help to pull this off. We're looking to raise $2,500 right now to send him off to North Dakota properly equipped next week.
The North Dakota Access Pipeline provides infrastructure for fracking at a time when we need to wean ourselves off fossil fuels. The pipeline will run under the Missouri River -- the only water source for the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation. Pipelines are notorious for leaking and will likely eventually pollute the drink water for hundreds of thousands of people along the Missouri River. Dimas Pandu stands against the Dakota Access Pipeline.
It would mean the world to the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation that Randy show up with the veterans next week. Can you help Dimas deploy to Standing Rock? No donation is too small. Mahalo for your kokua!
