Native Protesters Bring Pipeline Fight to DC:

#NODAPL:
https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=%23NODAPL+

Published on Aug 25, 2016

Eric Byler ( Twitter.com/EricByler ) reports for TYT Politics:


Indigenous people led the fight to protect the environment all over the world,
but for the first time in the United States,
tribal governments standing side by side with one another and with grassroots environmental organizations.


Special thanks to Luke Thomas-Canfield for operating the camera during interviews in this report.


"Water Is Life!" signs declared, as a coalition of Native Americans tribes and environmental justice organizations held a rally outside the Washington DC Federal District Court on August 24, 2016.

At issue
was the Dakota Access Pipeline, which was approved by the Army Corp of Engineers without proper consultation, plaintiffs argue, with the tribal government of the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation.

Tribal governments argued that the pipeline endangers the Missouri River, their only source of drinking water. Actress Shailene Woodley pointed out in her remarks that the Missouri is the source of water for
18 million other Americans
.

Judge James Boasberg heard oral arguments for and against a preliminary injunction that would halt construction on the pipeline until its legality is decided.
The Judge announced that he expected to rule on the motion by Sept. 9, 2016.

Opponents of the pipeline have been occupying a construction site since April 1.
Two weeks ago three dozen, young Americans ran to Washington DC from the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in South Dakota to raise awareness for the issue.

and 18 million Americans who depend on the Missouri River for drinking water

#NoDAPL #EnoughisEnough Rally 08/27/16

Native Activists want to have their sacred land back and reject the government trying to drill for oil.
They need clean water and they deserve clean water.

CNN has not been covering the Dakota Access Pipeline protests so we decided to bring the people to their building and show them Natives exist and they matter more than whatever stupid thing Donald Trump said today.

Jill Stein Defends Standing Rock Protesters

Speaking Out Against the Dakota Access Pipeline


Published on Aug 28, 2016

The Dakota Access Pipeline is a proposed construction project that would threaten the drinking water of 18 million Americans, and also
violate the sovereignty of a Native American tribe called Standing Rock Sioux.


Thousands have been protesting the pipeline, and have been faced with intimidation by police officers,
who are falsely claiming they're being violent.

Jill Stein spoke out in defense of the protestors
in an attempt to bring more attention to the issue.

Tom Goldtooth; protesting outside Fredrikson & Byron P.A.

Tom Goldtooth, a Navajo Dacotah, from the Indigenous Environmental Network in Minnesota
speaks to protesters gathered outside the law firm of Fredrikson & Byron P.A. who are representing
the Dakota Access Pipeline located in the UNISYS building in Bismarck on Monday, August 29th, 2016
.


carol christoffe

The pipeline was first routed into a PROTECTED area near Bismark, which is mostly urban and white.

It was deemed too risky for that water source. So they moved it to the
PROTECTED AREA near Standing RocK
.

The Gov IGNORED THE ENVIRONMENTAL LAWS when it came to Natives.

The company DID NOT DO what the law required:
ecological studies and official easements for the pipeline.
They ignored the laws because they know that they can.

After centuries of racism and abuse, the Natives are no longer wanting to be DUMPED on with risky ops.

Once the water is soiled, four states and 11 million people will be out of luck so the Koch brothers
can make more money
.

This video shows what I mean when I say:

Sound-good HALF-TRUTH Propaganda Rhetoric.

Company behind Dakota Access Pipeline lied about exporting oil

Published on Sep 1, 2016


"PROPONENTS OF THE DAKOTA Access Pipeline, which will connect fracked crude oil from the Bakken fields in North Dakota to markets across the country — claim the controversial project will enhance energy independence.
But at least a portion of the oil may well end up as exports to foreign markets, either as crude or as a
refined product
.

Energy Transfer Partners, the company behind the Dakota Access Pipeline,
has built public support and pressured regulators to approve the project
by asserting that the oil will enhance energy independence,
because it will be used exclusively by U.S. consumers.

The company claimed in a presentation in Iowa, a state that granted approval for the project this year,
that the pipeline will feature “100% Domestic produced crude” that “supports 100% domestic consumption.”

The domestic energy claim, which has been touted by company brochures and a pro-pipeline website,
has also been used to criticize hundreds of demonstrators in North Dakota who say
the Dakota Access endangers drinking water and threatens sites that are sacred to a number of Native American nations and tribes.
