Hundreds of protesters opposed to a North Dakota oil pipeline project they claim threatens water resources clashed with police who fired tear gas, rubber bullets and water cannons at them. An estimated 400 demonstrators mounted the Backwater Bridge and attempted to force their way past police.
There were fears protesters could catch hypothermia as they were soaked by police in the freezing November temperatures. It was the latest in a series of demonstrations against the Dakota Access Pipeline.
Things like this harden resolve, not weaken it. They’re playing stupid and cruel!
