, on Dec. 10
th of 2016, a small group of approximately 15 wonderful people marched onto Wells Fargo in La Crosse, WI. After peacefully protesting the group marched to the Three Rivers House for a discussion on local efforts towards stopping Big Businesses and their investments, support for Environmental aspects of La Crosse, and the denial to ease access of the DAPL through the Standing Rock Sioux tribe’s sacred and potentially vulnerable land. We discussed forming a Solidarity Network here in La Crosse, showing support for all indigenous lives and water protectors who fight in honor of protecting Native American’s and their land.
