OU Students Plan ‘No DAPL’ Campus Rally on Wednesday

Protesters hold a rally with the Standing Rock Sioux tribe in support of a lawsuit against the Army Corps of Engineers and plans for the Dakota Access Pipeline outside the US District Court in Washington, DC, August 24, 2016. The roughly 1,200-mile-long pipeline would transfer about a half million barrels of oil a day from North Dakota to Illinois. Opponents of its construction worry that a leak or rupture would spell disaster for not only the Standing Rock Indian Reservation, but for all communities along the Missouri River that depend on it for drinking and agriculture. / AFP / SAUL LOEB        (Photo credit should read SAUL LOEB/AFP/Getty Images)

A public rally against the Dakota Access Pipeline is set for Wednesday, September 14, 2016 on the University of Oklahoma campus. The event is a collaboration of university students, Native American tribal organizations and the general public.

The group will meet at Dale Hall in the South Oval at 12:00 p.m. The walk/protest will begin at 1:00 p.m.

The rally is intended to show solidarity and support with those who oppose the Plains All American – Red River Pipeline movement as well as those at the Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota.
