Ask around and you’ll hear stories of pipeline protesters who’ve traveled great distances.
They’ve come from Japan, Russia and Germany. Australia, Israel and Serbia. And, of course, there are the allies, not exclusively Native American or indigenous, who’ve flocked here from all corners of the US.
Together they stand in opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline, a $3.7 billion investment to move 470,000 barrels of domestic crude oil a day through four states. They’re fighting against what they see as corporate greed, an environmental threat and an assault on sacred land.
The other day over 100 people were arrested who had started violence over this and according to the article that actual inhabitants who live there were not concerned about this pipeline which crossed their land and would provide benefits to them.
How many are paid agitators I can only guess along with econuts who have no clue as to reality in their quest to bring the world to heel and take it back to the dark ages.
The real duplicity is while obama has been trying to shut down our natural resources he has spent money to help resource development in other nations.
