Victory at Standing Rock
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said Sunday that it won’t grant an easement for the Dakota Access oil pipeline in southern North Dakota, handing a victory to the Standing Rock Sioux tribe and its supporters, who argued the project would threaten a water source and cultural sites.
So, while there are people complaining- the oil company Energy Transfer Partners, N.D. Governor Jack Dalrymple- it looks like the pipeline is definitely not going through Sioux territory. This is good news, especially after the nightmare EPA picks from Trump.
