The STANDING ROCK SIOUX are in need of many items to sustain them in their fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline. Local Fairfax resident Peter Anderson has recently returned from a 3-week trip to the reservation to support them, and will be returning soon to bring them additional supplies.

SUSTAINABLE FAIRFAX IS HELPING PETER COLLECT ITEMS that are on on their supply list. In terms of clothing, they ONLY want very warm, good condition coats, sweaters, and other winter wear and insulated Carhartt type coveralls, overalls and coats. They also need heavy duty tarps, lighters, sleeping bags (only 0 degree F or lower), fur blankets, battery packs / solar chargers for charging phones, tents (that can stand up in high winds, snow, subzero temps), and small wood stoves. For a full list of supplies requested, see http://sacredstonecamp.org/supply-list/. (Note: firewood is being handled locally).

Please bring your items to Sustainable Fairfax, 6 School St, Suite 150 on Wednesday, Nov 9th between 11am-3pm, or you can deliver directly to Peter Anderson’s house at 19 Claus Drive in Fairfax (behind Museum of Bicycling)- leaving items on the porch is fine.
