This section will be finished soon, & contains a “List of Reasonable Demands” that will provide people with the opportunity to sign so we can get the class actions moved forward. Some of the “demands” can be found embedded among our platform, which has been adjusted since the time of our arrival at Standing Rock. Please check back with this website & our other websites, as we’re preparing them daily to move the upcoming case forward. In addition, there is a great deal of legal information being brought together on www.ReUniteTheStates.org, as we are concerned with not only adhering to legal procedure, but also we are concerned with “leaving a trail” to help others learn how to build & file civil actions.
