Vowing to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline Project protesters sought to occupy private land by setting up camp directly in the path of the pipeline construction. There are more than 100 protesters and the Morton County Sheriff’s Office says it does not have the manpower to remove them all. Which… leads one to believe that federal law enforcement can’t be far behind. Here are the opening lines from the KCCI story:
CANNON BALL, N.D. —Dakota Access oil pipeline protesters in North Dakota have set up a new camp on private land recently purchased by the development company.
The opponents say the area rightfully belongs to Native Americans under an 1851 treaty, and they are vowing to stay put until the project is stopped.
