SYRACUSE, NY -- A community marching, chanting and dancing together to show support for the Standing Rock Camp in North Dakota.
"I hope that the people who are at standing rock who are putting their lives on the line will feel supported by this and the rest of the country and the people running country protect our land and our water," said protester Isabel Rochlin.
People from all over walked alongside one another from Onondaga Nation to the city of Syracuse holding up signs that read "water is life" and "people over pipeline," their message- to protect mother nature against destruction.
"Stop the American greed over this. It's just all about money, it's not about people, it's not about people because if it was they wouldn't do this," said George Burke of Syracuse.
Protesters want to show their solidarity with those in North Dakota fighting on the front line as the pipeline will not only destroy sacred land but also affect water supply to many.
"It doesn't matter what color you are, what race you are, what religion you are whatever we all need it. It is the liquid of life. It's a life giving liquid, without it we should cease to exist," said Tekarontake from Kahnawake.
This unity march for standing rock wants to get everyone to listen and speak up to stop the construction of the pipe line they say threatens to impact water and the earth.
"Water is life and water is peace and if we have access to clean safe water then you can live together peacefully everywhere," said Andra Leimanis of Syracuse.
