Why I’m marching: I’m marching because working factory hours made it hard to get involved in any activism at all. I always wanted to participate in events like this. As DAPL was being built across Iowa I was driving on gravel roads enjoying the views. When I came across the scars from the access roads and saw how much land the farmers were losing I nearly shed tears.
About me: I’m Gary Clague. 62 years old and retired for almost 3 years after a 37 year span at 3M in Knoxville, Iowa. I live in Pella currently after being raised in Madison County on a farm. I like reading, local live music, craft beer, good food, and cats.
