Hello Friend,

Please join us on Saturday, December 17th for what will be a fantastic night of world music and dance, hip-hop and special guests, with "LA for Standing Rock!"

The nation, and indeed, the world has been mesmerized by the conflict playing out in North Dakota between those who oppose the Dakota Access Pipeline and those who want to bring more oil down river to be sold internationally. The "water protectors" have supporters beyond their wildest dreams, and while they had good news on Dec. 4th, the battle is far from over. Many of the thousands of protesters are digging in and preparing for a harsh winter. They need our support to help winterize and withstand ongoing pressures from the outside world.

The Markaz is pleased to bring you this "LA for Standing Rock!" benefit concert in partnership with the Pico-Union Project on Saturday, Dec. 17, 6-11 pm, with an action-packed evening of stellar performances. This will be a powerful experience, benefitting Standing Rock protesters.

On Saturday, December 17th, from 6:00 PM to 11:00 PM, The Markaz presents a big benefit concert for the water protectors at Standing Rock!

While the US Army Corps issued a statement on Dec. 4 leading folks to believe the Standing Rock battle has been won, the water protectors and their countless supporters are still in the fight. According to one observer on the ground writing on Dec. 5, "Energy Transfer Partners has already filed a petition to overturn the denial of easement orders. It's a chess game and the camp is going nowhere. We cannot sit back. We had a big win yesterday, but if we don't back it up, the drill platform is still in place, along with many more pipelines, mines and desecrated sacred sites around the country."

This benefit concert for Standing Rock, #NoNDPL, asserts that Los Angeles stands with the water protectors at Standing Rock in North Dakota. Presented by The Markaz in partnership with the Pico Union Project and produced by Alfred Madain and Paul Livingstone. All seating is pay-what-you-can, ranging -.
