Delivering supplies to protest camp could warrant $1,000 fine
Anyone delivering supplies to the main protest camp in Morton County could be subject to a $1,000 fine for violating the emergency evacuation order, but a local minister said this will not deter her church from providing support.
"It's cold out, really cold, and people need our help. Solidarity doesn't stop when the warm weather stops," minister Karen Van Fossen, of the Bismarck-Mandan Unitarian Universalist Congregation, wrote in an email Tuesday.
"As people of faith and conviction, we are committed to peaceful, prayerful solidarity with Standing Rock. If supplies are needed to survive the long winter, we will do our best to provide them," she said.
