Standing Rock Tribal Members & Allies Block Entrance to Pipeline Construction Site

From Unicorn Riot

On August 10th, resistance to the Dakota Access Pipeline (#DAPL, also known as the Bakken Pipeline) entered a new phase as the Army Corps of Engineers approved construction of the pipeline under the Missouri River.

Unicorn Riot has returned to Standing Rock to cover the events centered at the Sacred Stone Campnearby the construction area.

People gathered to state that their treaty rights are to be respected, with several tipis constructed this morning.

Storms rolled in with lightning illuminating the structures at Sacred Stone Camp late last night as Unicorn Riot arrived onsite.

In recent weeks, the US Army Corps of Engineers approved most permits for the $3.4 billion, 1,134 mile pipeline proposed by the company Energy Transfer, according to Indian Country Today.

Unicorn Riot has learned that the Bismarck, ND based security company “10-Code LLC” has been retained by Energy Transfer to provide the physical means to attempt forcing through this construction project; local community members believe DAPL jeopardizes their future survival by increasing risk of catastrophic environmental damage to the Missouri River basin.

10-Code LLC is registered with the North Dakota Private Investigation and Security Board. Its info:
