  • Judge won't stop construction of Dakota Access oil pipeline

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe is leading a march in Washington D.C. Friday to demonstrate their continued efforts to meet with President Donald Trump.

The event took place the same day as similar protests across the country and a march in Washington, D.C., that ended at the White House and drew thousands of participants.

The protest is partly led by the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, which has been battling the federal government for more than a year over an oil pipeline that members say endangers their drinking water and has destroyed sacred sites in North Dakota. Protesters erected a tepee in front of the hotel, played drums, and chanted.

"This is our way of life and we are protectors of the water". Two weeks later, the Army Corps of Engineers announced that it was granting the easement and also canceling a more thorough environmental review of the project that had been initiated two days before Trump's inauguration. "We do everything peacefully, prayerfully, but we're not going to let him just walk all over us like that and contaminate our water". The lake is the primary source of water for the Standing Rock Sioux Nation reservation. Idle No More SF Bay will host a march to the Civic Center, in a call for global attention to the protection of indigenous rights.

American Indian tribes have long argued that the $3.8 billion underground pipeline - which would run almost 1,200 miles from oil fields in North Dakota to an existing pipeline in IL - endangers cultural sites and drinking water that comes from the Missouri River.

The scale of resistance prompted outgoing U.S. president Barack Obama to block construction in December, but President Donald Trump overturned the ruling the next month.

Luis Enrique, who is set to leave Barcelona at the end of the season, said his side always believed they would advance . Messi made no mistake with the penalty to rifle home his 11th Champions League goal of the season.

"We must always remember that the laws of our nation are built on the foundations of the natural law, a law that can not be debated or overturned, laws that are not subject to the manipulations of special interest or corporations", she said.

It said rescinding Trump's recent executive order advancing construction of the 1886-kilometre oil pipeline, which crosses through four states, was a key demand.

The gendered aspect of violence against Native Americans in North Dakota, as a result of oil pipeline construction, has received little attention next to the looming environmental impacts and political controversy.

"We face a lot of obstacles", David Archambault, chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, told rally-goers.

Work on the pipeline, which is owned by Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners, was halted in December by the Obama administration. "It's essential for us as Native peoples to rise up together, to speak out against the tyranny that is right now the White house administration".

In contrast to the Cannon Ball, N.D. protest camps, police presence at the Native Nations March was minimal.
