In North Dakota, water protectors at the Oceti Sakowin resistance camp are facing an evacuation deadline Wednesday, as the fight continues against the $3.8 billion Dakota Access pipeline. North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum ordered the evacuation. Water protectors are currently cleaning up the Oceti Sakowin camp, ahead of the anticipated seasonal flooding of the area. Some water protectors are asking for more time to continue the cleanup.
