DAPL

The stage at Funk 'N Waffles Downtown served as both a musical and political platform to raise awareness about the Dakota Access Pipeline Wednesday night.

Sounds of solidarity could be heard all night long from the corner of South Clinton and West Fayette Street in downtown Syracuse. The source? Funk ‘N Waffles. The event? A fundraiser for the Standing Rock Water Protectors in North Dakota.

Donation drives and benefit concerts create ways for locals to support the water protectors against the Dakota Access Pipeline.

In front of the Schine Student Center last week, a group of Syracuse University students held signs that read “Celebrate Indigenous Survival,” “No DAPL” and “We Stand with Standing Rock!” They were waiting for the university to formally announce its recognition of Indigenous People’s Day on campus and spent the morning raising awareness about the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL).
