Police Raid Arubtly Interrupts Native Prayer Against Dakota Pipeline
The ongoing battle over the North Dakota pipeline has lead to an increased hostile environment. In recent news, North Dakota police have surrounded Native Americans with military-style equipment as they gathered in prayer in opposition of the construction this past Wednesday.
The Standing Rock Sioux tribe, among many other supporting tribes from across the U.S., Canada, and Latin America, as well as supporting communities at large, have been gathered at the construction site in resistance for months. They view the pipeline as a destruction of sacred and treaty-protected land, ultimately harming their livelihood.
