They were trying to access ancestral burial grounds they believe are being damaged by the Dakota Access Pipeline construction. Heavily armed law enforcement officials were deployed. As they pulled the bridge apart with boats, the Water Protectors swam and used their own boats to cross the water. Standing unarmed in the cold water, the protectors were forcibly repelled by the enforcers with tear gas, pepper spray and rubber bullets. Standoffs between the Water Protectors and law enforcement over the Dakota Access Pipeline continue in the area that has become ground zero for opposition to a $3.7 billion project that would move domestic crude oil across four states and destroy tribal lands.Locations:Cannon Ball, North Dakota-Cantapeta Creek-North America-North Dakota-United States of AmericaDate:2 Nov, 2016Credit:© Richard Bluecloud Castaneda / GreenpeaceMaximum size:5117px X 3682pxRestrictions:IMAGES OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLE IN THE USA MUST NOT BE USED FOR FUNDRAISING PURPOSESKeywords:Actions and protests-Bridges-Climate (campaign title)-Day-Evening-Hills-Indigenous People-KWCI (GPI)-Native Americans-Oil pipelines-Outdoors-Rivers-WaterShoot:Protest at Standing Rock Dakota Access Pipeline in the USThe public witnessed a new level of escalation on October 27, 2016 in the Native struggle at Standing Rock, as police swept through an encampment in the direct path of the Dakota Access pipeline (DAPL). The resulting standoff with the National Guard, and police officers from various states, led to 117 arrests. Advancing authorities attacked Water Protectors with flash grenades, bean bag launchers, pepper spray and Long Range Acoustic Devices (LRADs). It is crucial that people recognize that Standing Rock is part of an ongoing struggle against colonial violence. The Dakota Access pipeline (#NoDAPL) is a front of struggle in a long-erased war against Native peoples -- a war that has been active since first contact, and waged without interruption.
