Not all the Standing Rock Sioux are protesting the pipeline

 


Standing Rock Sioux Reservation, North Dakota (CNN) - Ask around and you'll hear stories of pipeline protesters who've traveled great distances.

They've come from Japan, Russia and Germany. Australia, Israel and Serbia. And, of course, there are the allies, not exclusively Native American or indigenous, who've flocked here from all corners of the US.

Together they stand in opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline, a $3.7 billion investment to move 470,000 barrels of domestic crude oil a day through four states. They're fighting against what they see as corporate greed, an environmental threat and an assault on sacred land.
