Indigenous and Latino Activists Take Dakota Protests to Dallas

 


Resistance against the Dakota pipeline has crossed state and ethnic lines with activists taking against the company behind the project with a protest outside its headquarter in Dallas, Texas.

The company, Energy Transfer Partners, is building a pipeline over one thousand miles away, from South Dakota to Illinois. But the activists in Texas were moved by a national call from the affected tribes who say the “Black Snake” crosses treaty-protected land and would contaminate the drinking water of millions.

An estimated 200 people chanted in front of company's offices, with support from dozens of groups, including the American Indian Movement, the Brown Berets, the Sierra Club and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference.
