Dakota Access pipeline work resumes near site of protest
ST. ANTHONY, N.D. — Construction on the four-state Dakota Access pipeline resumed Tuesday on private land in North Dakota that’s near a camp where thousands of protesters supporting tribal rights have gathered for months.
In turn, protesters said they’re discussing nonviolent opposition measures, including chaining themselves to equipment. And at least eight people were arrested Tuesday attempting to shut down pipelines in other states as a show of solidarity with the Dakota Access protesters.
Wyoming officials were not aware of incidents in the state, but one of the pipelines temporarily shut down by protesters carries crude oil from Canada through central Wyoming.
