Protesters cleared from Dakota Access oil pipeline camp
Authorities are investigating an incident in which two children suffered burns Wednesday after protesters lit 20 fires at the camp.
The day included another meeting with camp leaders, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Maj. "I'm not that naive to think that we can all go home and this is done now".
Public officials in North Dakota are pleading with the remaining protesters at the Dakota Access oil pipeline camp to pack up and leave so authorities can resume cleaning up the premises without any further arrests. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe began coordinating a cleanup in late January, but state officials said it wasn't happening fast enough. Hock said. "We can work together and share resources and honestly live better and work less". During Energy Transfer Partners' earnings call on Thursday, one analyst said the project was "probably a PR failure", for the Dallas-based company. "What they're doing is legal, but it is not justice", he said.
More than 50 officers entered the camp from two directions shortly before midday Thursday, along with several law enforcement and military vehicles.
This morning, more than 200 law enforcement officers clad in full riot gear entered the main encampment for those protesting the Dakota Access pipeline near Cannonball, North Dakota, where some people remained despite state and federal orders to leave.
As recently as December 5 2016, a significant oil spill occurred 150 miles from Cannon Ball, North Dakota where the Standing Rock camp sits. At its peak, thousands of people occupied the camp, including a large contingent of USA military veterans who traveled from across the country to provide logistical support and defend the protesters. She took some of the cedar used in that ceremony with her back to the protest camp, where she burned it as she readied to leave for the last time.
The lawyer agreed, saying, "The newest narrative that we're seeing from the North Dakota governor's office is that this is an 'environmental hazard, ' which to be is darkly preposterous and hilarious", especially when considering the devastating impact that oil pipelines continue to have on the environment in the US.
Tribe members are concerned the pipeline would affect their drinking water supply and place downstream communities at risk of contamination from potential oil spills.
Residents of the camp were surrounded by a large law enforcement contingent as the deadline approached, including some set up in the hilltops with bright lights shining onto the camp overnight. Anthony Gazotti, an activist from Denver, for one, said he does not plan on leaving the campsite.
During the three hours it took police to dismantle the sprawling stretch of remaining teepees, tents, and yurts, Chairman Frazier stood on a bluff overlooking the razing of Oceti Sakowin. But others said they were going nowhere. Construction had been stalled for months, as lawsuits challenging the permitting process for the pipeline made their way through the courts. No one wants to leave the land in a state of disrepair.
Nearby, construction of Dakota Access is proceeding under Lake Oahe after President Donald Trump directed agencies to expedite approval of the pipeline rather than complete the additional environmental review ordered by the Obama administration.
