Standing Rock tribe asks protesters to leave
January 23, 2017
The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in south central North Dakota has formally asked protesters to leave their camp near a pipeline project.
In a message posted on Facebook the tribe says its governing council has passed a unanimous resolution asking protesters to leave their camp along the Cannon Ball River. The tribe's request thanks protesters for calling attention to the tribe's opposition to the Dakota Access pipeline running under the Missouri River near their reservation.
