Please, please sign this petition to support the Lakota Sioux peoples in their efforts to regain their sacred lands, and stop them from being sold off to the highest bidder.

It takes moments, and could help prevent the heart of an ancient and still very much alive culture being destroyed forever.

I linked a kickstarter to this earlier in the pony thread.

http://www.indiegogo.com/PeSla-LakotaHeartland

Sadly, not even half of the goal was raised for this.

Oh, and of course I signed it.

Huh. I missed that one, somehow.
On topic, I jumped the bandwagon and signed.

Rightyo. I like the Lakota. I actually organized a deal between the Lakota Sioux and a business as a test when I was in college, to show I could manage a major business deal. It sucks they're in bad straights right now.

I really hope I'm not stepping on toes here, Nerf, but since I found more petitions (mainly on supporting marriage equality and stopping "gay cures") I thought I should consolidate instead of flooding the boards with tons of threads about petitions. I'll happily add any petition you find to the top post though, of course.

Signed.

Forums are such fertile ground for petitions (which is a good thing).

Not at all! Honestly I was thinking of doing the same thing myself; it's better to consolidate these things.

Thanks to all who signed, and if possible could you share via twitter/tumblr/facebook, or whatever it is you crazy cats use.

Also you don't have to be a US citizen either, I checked.

There's a second kickstarter here: http://www.indiegogo.com/Pesla
Hoping the petition works but any amount to the kickstarter should help tem if U.S. gov. won't respect their rights (and I'm not exactly optimistic there).
