ND Police Tear Gas Native American Protectors Defending Sacred Sites from Dakota Access Pipeline

HeadlineNov 07, 2016

In North Dakota, police fired tear gas at Native American water protectors fighting the $3.8 billion Dakota Access pipeline Sunday, as they tried to protect a sacred site where they say their ancestors are buried. Kandi Mossett of the Indigenous Environmental Network also responded to President Obama’s statement last week that the Army Corps is considering ways to reroute the pipeline.

Kandi Mossett: “Many of us here do not support a reroute, but it’s important for people to know that even uttering those words could effectively kill this project, because they cannot possibly afford it.”
