In news from the ongoing struggle at Standing Rock in North Dakota, the Dakota Access pipeline company has bought thousands of acres of land from private landowners just north of the site where thousands of Native Americans representing hundreds of tribes are camped out to resist the pipeline’s construction. The purchase of the land known as Cannonball Ranch includes the sacred tribal burial site that was destroyed by the Dakota Access pipeline company on September 3, when the company’s security guards attacked Native Americans with dogs and pepper spray.
