Dakota Access Protestors Continue To Remove Media Crews They Don’t Agree With

Dakota Access Pipeline protestors have certainly benefitted from the media storm their illegal protest has created. While some outlets allow protestors and activists to go unchecked, some have attempted to do their journalistic due diligence and report on the facts—much to the dismay of protestors.

In a recent Facebook post, protestors slammed Vice’s “negative” coverage of their ongoing efforts and emphasized that they are “glad” they camp banned the crew from the camp.…

In a letter, Senator John Hoeven, Congressman Kevin Cramer and Governor Jack Dalrymple called on President Obama to “direct the Army Corps to follow established regulatory criteria and approve the final easement for the Dakota Access Pipeline crossing at Lake Oahe. In addition, we recommend federal resources be deployed expeditiously to protect people and property in the area of violent protests.”

In a joint release, the three North Dakotan lawmakers emphasize the impact the ongoing protests have had on ranchers and community members.…

Permanent Structures Being Built on Federal Land in Violation of Corps

Unsurprisingly, the Dakota Access protestors continue to act in direct violation of laws and regulations. Earlier this year when the US Army Corps issued a special ruling allowing protestors to temporarily use the Corps’ federal land to stage their protest. However, the announcement also noted that “permission will be required for activities identified in Title 36 such as construction, either temporary or permanent, of any structures within areas identified in the Special Use Permit.”

Without any evidence that such a permit has been applied for and received, protestors have begun to build several permanent structures.…

Wyden – Merkley Letter Ignores Consultation, Review Process, Reality

In a letter sent to President Obama, Oregon Senators Wyden and Merkley disregard the over 400 individual meetings held between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Native American tribes regarding the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. Furthermore they ignore the fact that despite multiple attempts to reach out to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, there were multiple occasions that Chairman Dave Archambault, or other representatives of the tribe, simply refused to participate in the process.…

Occupy Democrats Spreads Misinformation on Dakota Access

A recent article posted by Occupy Democrats spreads patently false information about recent developments on the Dakota Access Pipeline. The title alone – “The Army Corps Just Shut Down Construction Of Dakota Pipeline” – sufficiently betrays the author’s uninformed position on the project. While the Corps has not granted its final easement for construction under Lake Oahe, progress on Dakota Access Pipeline continues – with the project over eighty percent complete.…

Statement from the MAIN Coalition on further Delay

Today’s decision is yet another attempt at death by delay and is a stunning rebuke of the Army Corps of Engineers, the federal civil service, four state governments, and the rule of law.  This extrajudicial, political decision is exactly why hard-working Americans across the country rejected a third Obama term.  By its own review and admission, the Army Corps of Engineers did everything right. …
