As if the original Dakota Access Pipeline didn’t cause enough drama, its developer now wants to expand the crude oil pipeline, which is still pending a new federal environmental review.
Opponents to the Dakota Access pipeline were dealt yet another a blow on Wednesday, when a U.S. District Court judge decided that the 1,172-mile long crude oil pipeline should continue operating until the Army Corps of Engineers concludes its environmental impact statement.
Police have brutalized protestors of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) in North Dakota over the past year. But this photo of burning tipis, which is now going viral, isn’t from the protests. It’s from a fictional HBO movie that aired ten years ago.
