On September 3, the Dakota Access pipeline company attacked Native Americans with dogs and pepper spray as they protested against the $3.8 billion pipeline’s construction. If completed, the pipeline would carry about 500,000 barrels of crude per day from North Dakota’s Bakken oilfield to Illinois. The project has faced months of resistance from the Standing Rock Sioux tribe and members of nearly 100 more tribes from across the U.S. and Canada.

Democracy Now! was on the ground at Saturday’s action and brings you this report:

  2. Dakota Access Pipeline is controlled by a Dallas based corporation Energy Transfer Partners (ETP and ETE). The Board of Directors of ETP includes the ever swift former republican Gov. of Texas and presidential candidate Rick Perry. http://www.EnergyPartners.com

    The video displayed in you post was very disheartening.
