Also the oil company to do this was sunoco logistics
So this pipeline has only been in the in the spotlight for 2 years or so but the pipeline has been being talked about since around 2010. this event has been taking place in cannon ball and the tribes reservation and this is the general area where the pipeline will be built and where the protests have been happening. You might be thinking that this is a rely bad idea but there are already many pipelines in america and this just sparked controversy because this tribe said that if a spill happens it can damage many things. this is a great reason to go fight this and i do not support the pipeline unfortunately trump has excepted the pipeline and they will now resume construction. So the government before trump did not support the pipeline except now that has has all changed.
