Port: Message from #NoDAPL activists is at odds with Standing Rock Tribe’s position
The protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline may have started with a camp established by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in rural south central North Dakota, but it’s a movement that’s gone national.
The latter incident was accompanied by a press statement saying the incident was done in solidarity with the Standing Rock Tribe.
“The pipeline’s route violates treaty rights of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe and poses a significant threat drinking water and the health of the Missouri river,” the organizers said.
The tribe needs to condemn this nonsense, for multiple reasons.
