Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Martin Heinrich (D. NM):

There are many issues facing Indian Country, but the recent violence against the Standing Rock Sioux tribe and those standing with them is fundamentally wrong.That is why I am calling on President Obama to work with the Army Corps of Engineers to help protect the Standing Rock Sioux tribe’s water supply and sacred sites. And we must act now before more lives are put in jeopardy with the impending December 5th order to vacate.

Please, join me by signing my petition and urge President Obama to intervene before December 5th.

There is a way to respect the Standing Rock Sioux and those that care deeply about these important resources, but setting a high stakes showdown with protesters is only going to create more provocation and violence.

Sign my petition and make your voice heard. Urge President Obama to intervene on behalf of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe.

Thank you for joining me on this critical issue.Martin
