On 16 November 2016, supporters of #StandingRock #NoDAPL demonstrated in front of the US Consulate at Clayallee 170 in Berlin, Germany.

We were joined by those acting for Hawaiian Independence, and fellows from Australia raising awareness about the situation in their country. Obama was in town, and one hopes at least one journalist or someone he met with asked him about his “Let’s see how it plays out” response recently.

See below for ways to support Standing Rock, and contact information for bank and companies funding DAPL and how/where to write to demand they stop.
