Back in the United States, in Des Moines, Iowa, the FBI raided the Catholic Workers’ Berrigan House that is home to activists Jessica Reznicek and Ruby Montoya, who have taken responsibility for carrying out multiple acts of sabotage against the Dakota Access pipeline. A former Catholic priest who lives at the house says the FBI agents refused to identify themselves and barred the house’s residents from contacting their lawyers during the raid. The agents also briefly handcuffed Jessica Reznicek but did not arrest either her or Montoya. The FBI agents left after seizing some of the two women’s possessions. Click here to see a full interview with Jessica Reznicek and Ruby Montoya.
