  • Standing up for Standing Rock

    About 35 people gathered at the Yellow Springs Speedway last Friday to protest the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota, which cuts through the Standing Rock Indian Reservation. The local protest is one of several efforts in Yellow Springs to call attention to the issue and support protestors in Standing Rock. Speedway’s parent company, Marathon, is a major investor in the pipeline project, and local protestors plan to continue pressuring the company with demonstrations each Friday in Yellow Springs and each Wednesday at Speedway’s Enon headquarters.

    Recently, a number of Yellow Springs residents have been advocating on behalf of those demonstrating against the construction of an oil pipeline through the Standing Rock Indian Reservation in North and South Dakota.
