Celebrities Demanding Biden Shuts Down The Dakota Pipeline As Well
Numerous celebrities sent a letter to President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris calling on their administration to shut down the Dakota Access Pipeline for good.
The letter comes just three weeks after the president signed an executive order to stop the Keystone XL oil pipeline. The move revoked the permit for the project, which demonstrated the new administration’s commitment to "a sustainable climate pathway to protect Americans and the domestic economy from harmful climate impacts," according to the order.
Now, more than 200 celebrities, climate activists and more have sent a letter demanding the Biden administration to continue its commitment by ending the long-disputed Dakota Access Pipeline.
"Thank you for your administration’s early focus on climate change, tribal sovereignty, and racial justice and equity, including your decision to stop the Keystone XL Pipeline," the letter begins.
It continues: "As your Administration takes action to address the climate crisis and strengthen relationships with Indigenous communities, we respectfully urge you to reverse another harmful Trump Administration decision and immediately shut down the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) during its court-ordered environmental review."
Celebrities who lent their names to the letter include Robert Downey Jr., Leonardo DiCaprio, Scarlett Johansson, Ryan Reynolds, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Ed Helms, Mark Ruffalo, Marisa Tomei, Joaquin Phoenix, Jane Fonda, Don Cheadle, Cher, Jason Momoa, Chelsea Handler, Alyssa Milano, Ava DuVernay and Amy Schumer.
