1,500 join Standing Rock oil pipeline protest

Native Americans from Wyoming, Colorado and as far as Oklahoma are pulling up by the busload to protest an oil pipeline in rural North Dakota.

Construction began near the Missouri River section of the 1,200-mile Dakota Access Pipeline last week. This week, more than 1,500 protesters arrived at the border of the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation.

“For two, years we’ve been holding them off, waiting for you to come. Now you’re here with us,” Jon Eagle Sr. told a cheering crowd at a protesters’ camp near the construction site.

The pipeline will carry more than 500,000 barrels of oil per day from North Dakota to Illinois. It’s crossing under the Missouri River, just upstream of the reservation.

  1. Yes this what you must do for the life of children who will be affected the worse.

    I posted on then10 big Oil company’s and the astronomical salarys of CEO as well as there profits via Bloomber g News.

    Can I move this around to post to others. It is my honor to be here with this knowledge.

    I did some research and as of now tons and tons of this toxic waste water is being introduced back to mother earth.

    If you guys can explain to me or all how they decide they are going to post on your land is not the BSM or Fed, Indian councel? I will tell you why, if they contonue on this way and they will. They are taking land from Rural minority, poisoning and charging them the taxes, and it is well known this property is all they. They evict them and leave them homeless.

    Greed is lethal
