Work on the last segment of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) is restarting after the federal government reversed course and approved the last easement. The drilling under the Missouri River will take 60 days to complete, and it will take another 23 days to fill the pipeline, according to a Thursday story in Indian Country Media Network.
Here are updates on the effort to stop DAPL.
- The group Veterans Stand is raising money to help pay for transportation and supplies for veterans to return to the site of the DAPL construction and show their support for water protectors.
- The Cheyenne River Sioux have filed the first legal action to try to overturn DAPL easement under the Missouri River.
- A judge rejects DAPL opponents request to make law enforcement stop using “excessive force.”
