Add your name to ask Senator Bernie Sanders to organize in Congress to stop a bill that would brand our Water Protectors as "economic terrorists" and allow them to be charged with a class-C felony.
It isn't only the demonstrators at Standing Rock who could be charged with a felony under this law, but also anyone who funded them.
Under the proposed law, Water Protectors could face up to five years in prison, as well as $10,000 fine.
Our Water Protectors risked life and limb against the winter cold and police grenades to safeguard the water of tens of millions of Americans. They should be treated as heroes, not felons!
Add your name to ask Bernie to organize against the bill that would turn our peaceful Water Protectors and all their supporters into class-C felons.
