Pipeline Protesters Face Deadline To Evacuate North Dakota Camp February 21, 2017

Hundreds of people who are still at a camp in North Dakota protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline have until Wednesday afternoon to comply with an order to evacuate. Gov. Doug Burgum issued the order last week, citing warm temperatures and the danger of rising floodwaters along the nearby Cannonball River.

Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson speaks with Madonna Thunder Hawk, a member of the Two Kettle Lakota tribe, who has been living at the camp.

With High Waters Looming, North Dakota Governor Orders Pipeline Protesters Out Of Camp
February 17, 2017 Updated 02/17/2017 2:01 PM

North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum (@DougBurgum), a Republican, has ordered people protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline to leave the camp where they've been living for months.

The governor says the camp presents an environmental risk and is in danger because of warming temperatures and the threat of spring flooding. Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson speaks with the governor.

Clarification: After this story aired Gov. Burgum's office told Here & Now the governor misspoke when describing the amount of land under water. Gov. Burgum originally said 30 percent of the camp was under four inches of water. A spokesman said it's about 30 percent of the roads in camp that are under water.

This story aired on February 17, 2017.

1. AP: New Standing Rock camp evicted by law enforcement
New Standing Rock camp evicted by law enforcement

Arrests as police move on 'Last Child' camp, set up across from larger camp near Standing Rock

The Associated Press Posted: Feb 01, 2017 6:03 PM ET| Last Updated: Feb 01, 2017 6:03 PM ET

Law enforcement have evicted about 40 Dakota Access pipeline opponents from a camp the demonstrators set up on higher ground near their flood-prone main camp in southern North Dakota.

The Morton County Sheriff's Office says the camp, near the Standing Rock Sioux reservation, was on private property owned by the pipeline developer. But in Facebook posts, demonstrators described what they called the "Last Child" camp as a "peaceful assembly."

Sheriff's spokesman Rob Keller says there were two initial arrests and no reports of injuries. Live-streaming video on Facebook shows several officers in riot gear on the scene.

The main camp once housed thousands but is now down to about 300 people. The tribe has told those in camp to leave, and the camp is being cleaned up in advance of spring flooding season.

Law enforcement have evicted about 40 Dakota Access pipeline opponents from a camp the demonstrators set up on higher ground near their flood-prone main camp in southern North Dakota.

The main camp once housed thousands but is now down to about 300 people. The tribe has told those in camp to leave, and the camp is being cleaned up in advance of spring flooding season.

Easement

The latest confrontation between demonstrators and law enforcement comes after a spokesperson from the U.S. Army said a review has begun of an easement that is necessary to complete the proposed Dakota Access oil pipeline.

Maj. Gen. Malcolm Frost says the Army is following the steps outlined in President Donald Trump's order earlier this month for a fast review of requests to approve the pipeline.

Frost cautions that the steps don't mean the easement has been approved.

The easement is necessary for the pipeline developer, Energy Transfer Partners, to complete the last unfinished section of the pipeline under North Dakota's Lake Oahe.

The pipeline has been the target of months of protests from the Standing Rock Sioux, whose reservation lies near the route, and thousands of supporters from around the country who argue it's a threat to water supply.

We stand with Standing Rock

[NoDAPL IS BIGGER THAN A PIPELINE]
As many of you have heard,the Army Corp of Engineers has issued a statement denying DAPL from receiving an easement to drill underneath the Missouri river. December 4 has been a day of celebration here at Oceti Sakowin Camp, but this fight is far from over.

Let us make this very clear: DAPL is most likely still drilling, they are still flying low flying aircraft over camps, and they are still shining flood lights on Oceti Sakowin. DAPL is not stopping at the moment because of what has been announced today. They have proven they do not care about the law, or what & who they harm to get this oil flowing. Do not trust mainstream media half truth articles. This is not over. The pipeline has not been stopped, just rerouted.

We have to prove that we are not backing down. Take a stand and show your solidarity with Standing Rock & all indigenous Americans in this fight to stop the DAPL by getting an “I Stand with Standing Rock” tee or hoodie here: https://goo.gl/angiwi .

While Eyes Were On Standing Rock, The Dakota Pipeline Was Being Drilled Under Another Water Source

While Eyes Were On Standing Rock, The Dakota Pipeline Was Being Drilled Under Another Water Source

While the pipeline may have been halted in North Dakota, construction workers just finished drilling under the Des Moines River, which supplies the water for half a million people in Iowa.

While Eyes Were On Standing Rock, The Dakota Pipeline Was Being Drilled Under Another Water Source
ADELE PETERS 12.06.16 6:15 AM

Last Friday, while the media focused on the thousands of protestors at Standing Rock, a construction crew working on the same under-protest project finished drilling through rock under the Des Moines River in Iowa—another major source of drinking water.

The pipeline crosses the river near the tiny community of Pilot Mound, Iowa. But the river supplies water not only to nearby small towns and farms, but also to Des Moines Water Works, which serves around half a million people in and near Des Moines.

In Bismarck, the capital of North Dakota, the $3.8 billion pipeline was rerouted—without the need for protests—because it risked the drinking water supply for around 67,000 people who live there. Federal rules for pipeline location are stricter for higher-population areas, while low-population areas don't get the same protections.

"Bismarck qualified for the extra protections, Standing Rock did not, nor did the crossing at the Des Moines River," says Carolyn Raffensperger, an attorney and executive director for the Iowa-based Science and Environmental Health Network. "The nearest town to the Des Moines River crossing, even though [the river] is the source of Des Moines's drinking water, is Pilot Mound, Iowa, which is five blocks long."

Protestors in Iowa fought against the pipeline construction for months, as they have in North Dakota, with some of the same protestors going back and forth between locations. "The resistance in Iowa has been as ferocious, in some ways," says Raffensperger, who was also the first attorney on the ground at Standing Rock. "Not as visible. We've had well over 400 arrestees. Between Standing Rock and Iowa, we've had over 1,000 arrestees."

The 1,170-mile pipeline, which crosses four states, is designed to carry about half a million barrels of oil a day from the Bakken oil fields in North Dakota to Illinois. Sunoco Logistics, the company that plans to operate the pipeline, has had 274 hazardous leaks and spills in the past decade—more than any other company. In October, one of the company's pipelines burst in Pennsylvania, spilling 55,000 gallons of oil into a river that supplies drinking water to 6 million people.

Landowners in Iowa are suing the Iowa Utilities Board for granting the permit, in part because they argue that the Board didn't have the authority to take the land through eminent domain. One of the other issues at stake: The Utilities Board required the parent companies behind the pipeline prove that they have the funds to clean up a spill, and Sunoco Logistics hasn't provided that proof. The lawsuit goes to court on December 15.

In its 2015 annual report, Energy Transfer Partners, the main company behind the pipeline, says that it may not be able to pay for cleanup even for spills in pipelines that are already in use: "Accordingly, we cannot assure you that our current reserves are adequate to cover all future liabilities, even for currently known contamination."

The fate of the Dakota Access Pipeline is still unclear. On Sunday, the Army Corps of Engineers announced that it wouldn't grant an easement needed to let the pipeline pass under Lake Oahe near the Standing Rock Sioux reservation—and that alternative paths need environmental impact statements, which take time to prepare. The delays, and other financial pressures, could possibly jeopardize the project. The Standing Rock tribe also still has a pending lawsuit. But even if the route bypasses Standing Rock, the larger project may still continue, and oil could eventually start flowing through the new pipeline in Iowa.

Beginning on December 1, continuing early into the morning on December 2, construction workers drilled through the river three times, after hitting the wrong spot twice. "Finally they got it done, and pulled the pipe through," says Raffensperger. "I think it took about 12 hours to pull the pipe through. And we stood there in the rain and protested, and defended water, and cried."

Veterans Apologize To Sioux Tribe At Standing Rock Forgiveness Ceremony
The Young Turks

https://youtu.be/yoUKCKl3Itg

Published on Dec 6, 2016
Recently at the Standing Rock Casino Wes Clark Jr. made a powerful statement asking the Native Americans for forgiveness for the harm the United States military has done on their people. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian of The Young Turks discuss this amazing moment at Standing Rock. http://www.tytnetwork.com/go

Read Wes Clark Jr.'s statement here: http://www.salon.com/2016/12/05/we-beg-for-your-forgiveness-veterans-join-native-elders-in-celebration-ceremony/

"Wes Clark Jr., the son of retired U.S. Army general and former supreme commander at NATO Wesley Clark Sr., was part of a group of veterans at Standing Rock one day after the Army Corps announcement. The veterans joined Native American tribal elders in a ceremony celebrating the Dakota Access Pipeline easement denial.

Lakota spiritual leader and medicine man Chief Leonard Crow Dog and Standing Rock Sioux spokeswoman Phyllis Young were among several Native elders who spoke, thanking the veterans for standing in solidarity during the protests.

“Many of us, me particularly, are from the units that have hurt you over the many years. We came. We fought you. We took your land. We signed treaties that we broke. We stole minerals from your sacred hills. We blasted the faces of our presidents onto your sacred mountain. When we took still more land and then we took your children and then we tried to make your language and we tried to eliminate your language that God gave you, and the Creator gave you. We didn’t respect you, we polluted your Earth, we’ve hurt you in so many ways but we’ve come to say that we are sorry. We are at your service and we beg for your forgiveness.” - Wes Clark Jr.*
