Feds say they won’t evict sprawling N Dakota pipeline protest camp

The Standing Rock Sioux has challenged the Army Corps of Engineers’ decision to grant permits for the pipeline that is intended to carry North Dakota oil to Illinois. Due to a federal court decision, construction has stopped within 20 miles on either side of Lake Oahe, a Missouri River reservoir that is near the encampment. The Departments of Justice, Army and Interior also has said it will “reconsider any of its previous decisions” on land that borders or is under the lake.Hall, a member of South Dakota’s Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe, said the Sioux “never ceded” the land on which they’re camping. He said they are preparing to stay through the winter by stockpiling firewood, heating stoves and warmer clothes. But there’ll be no permanent structures built, Hall said.”We will leave this camp as we found it,” he said.

They certainly paint the activists as some kind of serious threat which is sad. If they live there they should join the resistance and protect their own lands and water.  The more they complain the more it will put the activists in jeopardy.

Thanks!
