Justice League Stars Speak Out on Dakota Access Pipeline
By: Megan Mitchell
The highly anticipated film “Justice League” is in production but it’s what’s happening off camera that’s making waves on the Internet.
Three stars of the movie posted messages online showing their opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline.
Ezra Miller who plays “The Flash” in the superhero film and co-star Ray Fischer who plays “Cyborg,” released a 30 second video of them on set, stating their support of the Standing Rock Reservation in stopping the controversial pipeline.
Just a few days before this, another Hollywood star showed his support of the tribe as well.
Jason Momoa who portrays “Aquaman,” posted to his Instagram page with a sign informing fans of the situation. This star-studded endorsement for the tribe comes just after weeks of petitions, public meetings and protests.
The pipeline is projected to go directly through the community’s main water source and be the biggest capacity pipeline to date. Tribal members and landowners from across the region say drinking water would be contaminated.
The Army Corps of Engineers is set to make a final decision on the project sometime this month.
