Pipeline protesters mount “last stand”

With the last leg of the Dakota Access oil pipeline being given the final go-ahead by the Unites States Army, protesters are mounting a final challenge to the controversial project.

The Associated Press:

Some members of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, which has been at the center of the debate for nearly a year, urged “emergency actions” via social media. The Indigenous Environmental Network told people to target fuel-transportation hubs and government buildings and to expect violence and mass arrests.

Protesters posted an online list of about 50 events nationwide. There were large rallies, including one outside the White House, and smaller ones, such as in Des Moines, Iowa.
