Efforts to stop the North Dakota access pipeline are increasing at a notable pace since the appearance of Shailene Woodley, Susan Sarandon and Riley Keough in Washington D.C. last Wednesday. Their show of solidarity was followed by a lengthy statement of support from celebrated musician Jackson Browne, as well as a YouTube statement of the cast of the Justice League (including Jason Momoa), and the support of internationally-known celebrities, musicians and politicians toward the Standing Rock Sioux tribe.
In addition to the celebrities listed above, a slew of others have issued public statements and/or shared their support and recognition of #NoDAPL on social media.
The list of notables includes Oscar-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio, comedian Chris Rock, former presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders, actress and activist Daryl Hannah, Saulteaux actor Adam Beach, MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell, actor Mark Ruffalo, musical artist Pharrell Williams, Ojibwe/Dine’ actress Tinsel Korey, Native hip hop artist Nataanii Means and the Indigo Girls.
Here are a plethora of social media posts from notables supporting #NoDAPL.
Private security for DAPL maced us, and used attack dogs. We stood strong, prayers for the ones that were bit. I’m heated.
