Dakota Access protesters rappel from rafters during Vikings-Bears game

 


MINNEAPOLIS — The Minnesota Vikings season finale against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, Jan. 1, at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis was disrupted in the second quarter by a demonstration protesting U.S. Bank's involvement in the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Two people in rappelling gear hung from a large beam in the East end zone of U.S. Bank Stadium with a long vertical banner reading, "U.S. Bank DIVEST #NoDAPL."

The protesters and banner hung above fans, forcing U.S. Bank Stadium security to clear approximately six rows of seats underneath the protesters and banner.
