The Dakota Access Pipeline is almost completed, but protesters have not surrendered. Hundreds clashed with police this weekend to protest against the pipeline for its environmental impact and its invasion of ‘sacred’ territory of the Sioux in the banks of the Missouri River. Police is said to have deployed pepper spray, teargas, rubber bullets, Tasers, sound weapons, and other “less-than-lethal” weapons. The construction company, Energy Transfer Partners, still lacks a final permit to drill under the river.
