Protesters Block Construction on Dakota Access Pipeline

by Inside Climate News Sunday, Aug. 28, 2016 at 1:41 PM

The Standing Rock Sioux and their supporters temporarily blocked construction on the Dakota Access Pipeline. The protest in Canon Ball, ND is ongoing and activists are being arrested as they become more effective in slowing the construction.





brief summary of article; "Native American Pipeline Protest Halts Construction in N. Dakota" by Phil McKenna of Inside Climate Change;

Canon Ball, ND - Over one thousand protesters including many Native American tribes are calling for an end to construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. The corporation "Energy Transfer Partners" plans to route the pipeline underneath the Missouri river and also below Native American Sioux burial grounds. The entire pipeline route is from North Dakota's Bakken oil fields to central Illinois. Though many communities along the Dakota Access pipeline route have protested eminent domain tactics used by the pipeline, the Canon Ball, ND protest is the largest and most effective thus far.

The Standing Rock Sioux tribe and many others have blocked the construction physically with their bodies for several weeks now. Protests began in April along with a march and petition with 150,000 signatures delivered to the Army Corps of Engineers. The pipeline route is within a few miles of their reservation and any spills or leaks will contaminate their drinking, fishing and irrigation water. New reinforcements are arriving to support them, though the rates of arrest are also increasing.

"We have to be here," David Archambault II, the chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, who was arrested at the site last week, said in a statement. "We have to stand and protect ourselves and those who cannot speak for themselves."
