Dear Friend,

In these times of elections, climate chaos and COVID-19, independent news is more important than ever. You turn to Democracy Now! because you trust that when we're reporting on the pandemic or the uprisings against police brutality—or the climate crisis—our coverage is not brought to you by the fossil fuel, insurance or weapons industries or Big Pharma. We count on YOU to make our work possible. Today, a generous supporter will DOUBLE your new monthly donation to Democracy Now!, meaning your gift will go twice as far. This is a challenging time for us all, but if you're able to make a monthly donation and provide us with support we can rely on all year, please do so today. Stay safe, and thank you so much.

ND: 1 Injured After Armed Man Drives Truck Through Dakota Access Pipeline Protest

HeadlineNov 14, 2016

In North Dakota, water protectors resisting the $3.8 billion Dakota Access pipeline say an armed white man drove his truck through a crowd of Native American protectors, running over one woman and then firing live bullets into the air, during a demonstration Saturday at a worksite near Mandan. Local authorities are investigating the incident. This comes after 37 people were arrested on Friday, as water protectors maintained multiple highway blockades. The Army Corps of Engineers is expected to make a decision within days about whether it will grant a permit allowing Energy Transfer Partners to drill underneath the Missouri River.
