FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Pinellas Green Party Officially Endorses The “Shut It Down” Anti Dakota Access Pipeline Demonstration
December 3, 2016
St. Petersburg, FL – The Pinellas Greens have long given their support to the Water Protectors at Standing Rock. As an organization that maintains constant vigilance on how we treat the planet and its natural resources, we enthusiastically support the Shut It Down movement spearheaded by Tracy Penokie and call for a permanent ban on construction of pipelines of this nature.
We and other likeminded citizens of St. Pete plan to peacefully show our opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline by assembling at the intersection of 22nd Avenue North and 34th St. (US19) on Monday, December 5th at 3:45PM.
The first of the Ten Key Values of the Green Party is Ecological Wisdom. We do not think it is wise to potentially endanger our vital water supply. We hope this demonstration peacefully reminds our elected officials and neighbors how important it is that we get this right.
Co-Chairman, Pinellas Greens
