Oil Flowing Through DAPL
June 5, 2017
Oil started flowing through the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) on Thursday June 1 as the Standing Rock Sioux and other tribes vowed to continue their court fight to get the approvals overthrown.
“We’ve been working on our court case and expect a federal judge to soon rule on our request that the pipeline be halted and the Trump administration’s approval be thrown out,” said a media release from EarthJustice, the nonprofit environmental law firm representing tribes that are fighting the pipeline approval in court. “Even though the oil started flowing before the court rules, the judge still has the power to halt it.”
