Winnipeggers march to show solidarity with Standing Rock

 


A group of Winnipeggers marched down Portage Avenue Sunday, in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in North Dakota.

The reservation is currently fighting the Dakota Access Pipeline, a multibillion-dollar project that would see crude oil transported from a Bakken oilfield near the Canadian border to Illinois.

The community says if the project goes ahead, it will destroy sacred sites and put a river at risk that's a source of drinking water for millions.
