The Town of Mahwah claims the right to fine the Ramapough tribe up to $5,000 per week in penalties related to Split Rock Sweetwater Prayer Camp. We are requesting assistance with our legal defense fund.
Special thanks to the students at SUNY New Paltz campus who raised $588! Thank you for helping us protect our sacred water
The Split Rock Sweetwater Prayer Camp’s goal is to bring all people and nature together in support of our water. Inspired by Standing Rock and the Dakota, Lakota and Nakota call to protect the waters against pipelines, the Split Rock Sweetwater Prayer Camp opposes the Pilgrim Pipeline’s use of the same hydrofracked Bakken crude oil from North Dakota that Pilgrim wants to transport in our lands on the Hudson and Ramapo rivers of New York and New Jersey.
One of the nation's seven sole source aquifers provides water to millions of people and is being threatened by these pipelines and hydrofracking.
The Town of Mahwah has issued a Notice and Order of Penalty and Notice of Violation and Order to Terminate to the Ramapough Lenape Nation regarding the Split Rock Sweetwater Prayer Camp. The Town of Mahwah claims the right to fine the the Ramapough tribe of up to $5,000 per week in penalties related to Split Rock Sweetwater Prayer Camp. Other alleged violations carry a fine of up to $1,500 and 90 days in jail. Split Rock Sweet Water is requesting $10,000 to start a legal defense fund. Anushiik (thank you).
