Dakota Access Pipeline Protesters Pepper Sprayed in Latest Standoff

Since last Thursday’s violent police raid, which established a militarized zone around Dakota Access Pipeline construction areas, the Morton County Sheriff and supporting agencies have fanned out into the area surrounding the Oceti Sakowin camp.

Groups of police vehicles have parked in several areas to monitor the activity at the camp. One such area is a hill behind the main resistance camp, directly across part of the Cannonball river, known as Cantapeta Creek.The original people of the area describe this hill as a sacred site, one that contains ancient burial grounds, which police are desecrating by parking their vehicles on it.

They have brought in police from multiple states.  It’s estimated there are more than 500 police there – they outnumber the activists.  IF you can get there – GO!
