Standing Rock protesters vow ‘mass resistance’ to Dakota Access

Activists are threatening “mass resistance” to President Donald Trump and the Army Corps of Engineers on the hotly disputed Dakota Access pipeline — and it could be difficult for the White House to counter the movement.

Acting on an order from Trump, the Army Corps of Engineers on Tuesday said it would grant the easement that Energy Transfer Partners needs to finish the final stretch of the pipeline. It also canceled an environmental review the Corps said it would undertake while President Barack Obama was still in office.

That announcement amplified alarm among Native Americans and their allies, who oppose the pipeline because it would pass beneath Lake Oahe, a drinking water source and sacred site.

“The granting of an easement, without any environmental review or tribal consultation, is not the end of this fight — it is the new beginning. Expect mass resistance far beyond what Trump has seen so far,” the Indigenous Environmental Network said in a statement.

Mass resistance is exactly what the corporate and political establishments fear most.
