USA:#NoDAPL protest for Standing Rock in Washinton DC

United States, Washington D.C
December 11, 2016 at 12:50 GMT +00:00 · Published

Protesters marched from the U.S. Capitol building to the Environmental Protection Agency in Washington D.C on Saturday in a demonstration against the construction of the North Dakota Access Pipeline.

Protesters carried signs that read "People over profit, no DAPL" and "No pipeline, respect clean water" as they marched in a peaceful protest. One demonstrator said, "The work to protect our environment, and the rights of the indigenous peoples in this country and globally, is far from over and we must continue building on this energy and moment."

The demonstration was affiliated with DC stands with Standing Rock, which is a coalition of Native Americans who work to fight for indigenous rights.

Since it was approved in late July, the 1,886-kilometre (1,172 miles) pipeline has sparked outrage among Native American communities and locals. The project is expected to carry crude oil from the North Dakota region, north of the tribe's lands, to southern Illinois when it's completed by the end of the year. Thousands of Native Americans representing tribes from all over the country have travelled to North Dakota to camp in the solidarity with Standing Rock Sioux.
