We are in URGENT need of legal defense funds for our water and land protectors at Split Rock Sweetwater Prayer Camp. Please consider donating and sharing widely. Every dollar counts! Anushiik!
Since October 2016, under the leadership of the Ramapough Lenape Nation, Split Rock Sweetwater Prayer Camp has been holding space and leading the fight against the proposed Pilgrim Pipeline, a 178-mile pipeline that would carry up to 200,000 barrels of crude oil per day from Albany, New York to Linden, New Jersey endangering local water supplies, sacred sites, and essential wetlands.
Unfortunately, the presence of Split Rock Sweetwater Prayer Camp has exposed deeper issues surrounding indigenous sovereignty, land rights, freedom of religion, and discrimination against the Ramapough Lenape Nation. Water and land protectors at Split Rock Sweetwater Prayer Camp have experienced harassment, intimidation, and false accusations on an ongoing basis from the Town of Mahwah and surrounding Polo Club neighbors. Now, coincidentally, three protectors have been charged in connection to alleged vandalism near Split Rock Sweetwater Prayer including Ramapough Lenape Nation Tribal Chief, Dwaine Perry.
We are in URGENT need of defense funds to protect our land and water protectors at Split Rock Sweetwater Prayer Camp. Please consider donating and sharing widely. Every dollar helps! Anushiik!
