Clashes, arrests and fears - North Dakota pipeline protest at a boiling point
Robby Romero and his fellow Native American activists have drawn a clear line on the cold North Dakota ground.
“This is our stronghold,” Romero said. “They will not cross this line.”
The line is North Dakota Highway 1806, which runs through the Standing Rock Sioux reservation, near where the Fortune 500 company Energy Transfer is building a $3.78-billion. 1,172-mile-long crude oil pipeline on lands adjacent to the reservation.
