We're planting "Seeds of Resistance" to help grassroots communities fighting Big Oil and working to protect our land, water and climate.
Your donation will go directly to support local landowners and grassroots groups fighting pipelines like Keystone XL, and the Mountain Valley and Atlantic Coast fracked gas pipelines — and to spread the "Seeds of Resistance" to other communities across the country who are battling risky fossil fuel projects.

Seeds of Resistance Tour 2017: June 10-14, Virginia & West Virginia
Traveling to the Appalachia region to plant sacred Ponca corn "Seeds of Resistance" with landowners in the paths of the proposed Mountain Valley and Atlantic Coast fracked gas pipelines include Mekasi Horinek Camp, Ponca Nation member and coordinator with Bold Alliance, and Floris White Bull, Standing Rock Sioux Tribe member -- both of whom lived at the Water Protector camps at Standing Rock for months while helping organize resistance to the Dakota Access pipeline.
The first "Seeds of Resistance" were planted as medicine on the Keystone XL pipeline route in 2014 by the Cowboy and Indian Alliance. The sacred Ponca corn was returned to the tribe's ancestral homeland in Nebraska for the first time in 137 years, when the tribe was forcibly removed from Nebraska.
Since their first planting in Nebraska as a strategy of blocking the Keystone XL pipeline and building a Cowboy and Indian Alliance, the "Seeds of Resistance" have spread across the world, to Ecuador, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Virginia, West Virginia and other communities standing up to Big Corporations.
Donate to help plant the "Seeds of Resistance" and show the power of Pipeline Fighters.
