In more news on the Dakota Access pipeline, police arrested more than 40 people in southeastern Iowa as they crossed onto a Dakota Access pipeline construction site near where the company plans to bore beneath the Mississippi River. The activists were arrested with plastic handcuffs and were charged with trespassing. This comes less than three weeks after 30 others were arrested in Iowa blocking the pipeline’s construction. A group of Iowa landowners have also sued the Dakota Access pipeline company over its use of eminent domain.
