The Water Protectors in Geneva
(Image by Marie de Lutz Photography)

The Water Protectors from the Sioux tribe of Standing Rock, along with around 30 activists, participated in an action of civil disobedience. They occupied the Geneva headquarters of Credit Suisse to denounce their financing of fossil energies and notably the 1.4 billion USD invested in #DAPL.

They trecked through Geneva to bring their voices and testimonies to many people, from the alternative space L’écurie to the 35th session of the UN Human Rights Council at the Palais des Nations, Geneva headquarters of the UN.

From testimonies to hip-hop and a ceremony of water organized on the shore of Lake Geneva, with songs, prayers and meditations, the Water Protectors are doing whatever is necessary to denounce attacks against the rights of indigenous peoples and the climate.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

We must act and dare the appropiateness and not whatever comes to our mind not floating in the likelihood but grasp the reality as brave as we can be freedom lies in action not in the absence of mind obedience knows the essence of good and satisfies it, freedom dares to act and returns God the ultimate judgment of what is right and what is wrong, Obedience performs blindly but Freedom is wide awake Freedom wants to know why, Obedience has its hands tied, Freedom is inventive obedient man respects God’s commands and by virtu of his Freedom, he creats new commands. Both Obedience and Freedom come true in responsability (Dietrich Bonhoeffer)
