Rally in Support of the Standing Rock Sioux

Over 300 Hamiltonians rallied Monday in support of the Standing Rock Sioux in their struggle to protect their ancestral lands and waters from the Dakota Access Pipeline. They joined hundreds who marched on November 5 in Toronto, similar actions across North America, and over 200 First Nations who have joined the Standing Rock Sioux in North Dakota. The rally was organized by Hamilton 350 Committee for Action on Climate Change.  Cathie Coward/Hamilton Spectator
