32 Arrested After 200 Iowa #NoDAPL Protesters Dismantle Security Fence in Bid to Disrupt Pipeline Drilling

MONTROSE, Iowa — On Saturday, October 1, more than two hundred water protectors marched from the banks of the Mississippi River through a timbered woodland lot to a Dakota Access river boring site and tore down a security fence before being repelled by the Iowa State Patrol and the Lee County Sheriff’s Department.

Thirty-two people were arrested and charged with trespassing, officials confirmed.

The protest was organized by the grassroots collective Mississippi Stand and their solidarity network across Eastern Iowa. Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement, Bold Iowa, and 100 Grannies United for a Livable Future also co-sponsored the action and mobilized some of their members.
