About The Northa Dakota Pipelines

The Dakota Access Pipeline is a 1,172-mile underground state of the art 30” pipeline extending from the Bakken/Three Forks production area in North Dakota to Patoka, Illinois. The pipeline will transport domestically-produced, light, sweet crude oil from North Dakota to major refining markets in a more direct, cost-effective, safer and more environmentally responsible manner than other modes of transportation, including rail or truck.The Dakota Access pipeline is funded directly by 17 banks like Wells Fargo,and Citibank At today’s production volumes, the pipeline will transport half of the total production coming from the Bakken, facilitating royalties from production to the landowners and state, and to many Native Americans who have oil and gas leases or production on reservation property. The Dakota Access Pipeline has created roughly 12,000 jobs during construction and is a critical link from the Bakken formation, which supports more than 80,000 North Dakota jobs, but on April 1 2016 a group of 200 Native Americans ride on horseback to protest the pipeline's location a tribe called The Standing Rock Sioux.

The Standing Rock Sioux

The Standing Rock Sioux Reservation is situated in North and South Dakota. The people of Standing Rock, often called Sioux, are members of the Dakota and Lakota nations. ... The Ojibwa called the Lakota and Dakota. The Standing Rock Sioux and thousands of allies have physically put themselves in the path of the pipeline to protect their reservation and a stretch of the Missouri River. and now many more people are joining and tents are being built to prevent the pipeline from extending towards the Standing Rock.

"What the little towns look like that will prevents the pipeline extension."

Taking A Stand

The site of mass protests against the Dakota Access pipeline, is very important. People have joined Native’s in standing up for the protection of air and water quality, as well as the protection of sacred lands. Now there is something more you can do to get involved and take action, we’ll get to this in a moment. Standing Rock is very much a reflection of the angst the public is experiencing as they see how ruthless the actions of big corporations can be in taking non harmonious actions with our planet. The people are also using social media to bring other people into the protest and maybe some popular people to do the same to others and to stop the North Dakota Pipelines. there are many important people who did help out with the Prevention of the North Dakota Pipeline and they are Ben Affleck, Ray Fisher, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa and Ezra Miller—stars of the upcoming superhero movie Justice League—filmed an endorsement for Respect Our Water, a campaign launched by young members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, and they say in there video "As a gang of Earth defenders, we want to send a big shoutout to the Oceti Sakowin and those who stand with them in opposing the Dakota Access Pipeline,"

"The Justice league Cast talking about the North Dakota Pipeline."

The Enemy Of The People

In every protest there are always and enemy to prevent us from doing what we think is right. Local law enforcement officers that were hired by the bank companies have arrested some people who chose not to evacuate federal land near part of the Dakota Access Pipeline north of the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation. Most protesters had left earlier. At dusk, police moved back, and said they would not enter the camp at that time. The Police also used tactic to make the protesters go away a lot faster way using pepper spray and also dogs to run the people out of the way, another prevention of the protesters is the winter when people are giving up the land becuase of the freezing cold in the winter. they overcomes these by building shelters and organized supply systems for food and water, even as winter brought freezing temperatures and feet of snow, and for the law they will do everything they canto not get caught and arrested, sometimes people handcuffed themselves to the pipline so they wouldn't get arrested

Conclusion

This impacts for everyone today, because of how it changed from people caring about what companies are doing to expand their companies to get more products quicker and faster and the people are seeing that but they are also seeing the preventions of the environment if something happens to the pipelines affect our water or something else important in our life, and the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe are not taking that chance of that happening to their lands. the North Dakota Pipelines for me is the same as the Montgomery Bus Boycotts for many reasons like how they both do not use force to get what they wanted all
