Small group protests Bank of America's funding of Dakota Access Pipeline

Hansen's story continued after the executive orders on Tuesday, Jan. 24 to revive the Dakota Access and Keystone XL oil pipelines.

"We're looking forward to working with a president and an administration that value American energy affordability, jobs, security and new infrastructure development", they said. The main protest camp has dwindled to several hundred after the Standing Rock tribe asked activists to leave when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers denied the easement.

The protesters, with the local group Protectors of Water and Land, held signs that promoted clean energy and blasted the bank in front of its branch at 800 E. Cherry St. for financing a portion of the project. The route, which was altered 140 times in North Dakota to protect cultural resources, cuts along private land where other pipelines run.

The Dakota Access Pipeline sparked a massive political fight previous year after Standing Rock Sioux tribal officials came out against the project, saying it would trample over sacred sites and threaten its drinking water.

The Canadian-owned Keystone XL pipeline was also approved by the executive order. The project needs approval from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. He said that it's hard to believe that this method is cheaper than simply building the pipelines in the USA, and thus creating jobs in the process.

"I wasn't surprised", she said of Trump's order.

Now the USA has over 28 million small businesses, defined as companies with 500 or less employees.

"The protesters of the DAPL need to understand that this isn't just some pipe running through the dirt with oil gushing into a reservation", Sarah Moyer explained.

But he'll be met by a fierce native resistance movement that "will not back down", said the organizer, Joye Braun, on a press call organized by the Indigenous Environmental Movement (IEN).

According to Energy Transport Partners-the Texas-based company building the pipeline-the Dakota Access Pipeline was proposed to address the growing number of freight trains shipping oil out of North Dakota, which have a higher risk of exploding than the pipeline would.
