Dakota Access Pipeline – Native Americans Protest DAPL – What Is The Story? Why The Media Blackout?!


Written by JayWill7497


The fight of Native American tribes in North Dakota against an oil pipeline continues, and the protest camp says it’s not going anywhere until the Dakota access pipeline meets their demands, the biggest of which is altering the route of the proposed pipeline which, under it’s current blueprint would cross the Missouri River.

This creates concerns with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe that their only source of water could be destroyed.

Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) is a 1,134-mile-long (1825 km) underground U.S. oil pipeline project for crude oil being planned by Dakota Access, LLC, a subsidiary of the Dallas, Texas corporation Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. to begin in the Bakken oil fields in Northwest North Dakota, travel through South Dakota and Iowa before ending in Patoka, Illinois.

The $3.7 billion project became public in July 2014, and informational hearings for landowners took place between August 2014 and January 2015.


Dakota Access submitted its plan to the Iowa Utilities Board (IUB) on October 29, 2014, and applied for a permit in January 2015. The IUB was the last of the four state regulators to grant the permit in March 2016, including the use of eminent domain, after some public controversy.

As of March 2016, Dakota Access had secured voluntary easements on 82 percent of Iowa land.

The pipeline has been controversial regarding its necessity, potential harm to the environment, and impact on climate change.

A number of Native Americans in Iowa and the Dakotas have opposed the pipeline, including the Meskwaki and several Sioux tribal nations.

In August 2016, ReZpect Our Water, a group organized on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation, brought a petition to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Washington, D.C., the tribe sued for an injunction, and a protest has begun at the pipeline site in North Dakota that has drawn international attention.

  • looks as if there are several people who agree with me except for the getting violent!

  • Well, the government is giving the middle finger to the native Americans AGAIN. Of course they are, they are giving the whole world the middle finger. Time is short for these corrupted people.

  • I hate to say this, but people fully misunderstand the 1st, and 2nd, amendments. It isn’t just for hunting! It isn’t just for self protection! It is mostly about being able to stand against a tyrannical government!

    This tyrannical government understands that all to well, so they made it illegal to have weapons at a protest! They made it illegal to have weapons anywhere near them! They made it illegal to resist, or defend yourself! And, the result, they mow you over! They arrest you! They taser you! They pepper spray you! They beat you! They kill you! Until you don’t feel like standing against them anymore! The 1st amendment talks of the right of the people to gather peacefully and protest! It does not say come as sitting ducks, so that we (gov) may mow you over!

    You think that if Americans exercised their rights as intended, any of this would be going on against the wishes of the people! Indian, black, hispanic, or white!

  • this is the heart of all US/AS A PEOPLE-the black snake prophecy is interesting and time speaks to those who listen-
    as i write this and why i must share-winter soon will descend on the plains and it will be cold-our prayers are with you-
    The U.S. Geological Survey reported the earthquake struck at 8:44 p.m. EST, with an epicenter located one mile west of Cushing, 16 miles east-southeast of Stillwater, and 53 miles northeast of Oklahoma City, CBS affiliate KWTV-TV, Oklahoma City reported. The quake was felt as far away as Kansas City, Missouri, and Little Rock, Arkansas. It was also felt in Iowa, Illinois and Texas.The OCC’s Pipeline Safety Department has been in contact with pipeline operators in the Cushing oil storage terminal under state jurisdiction and there have been no immediate reports of any problems-Cushing, which has a population of about 7,900, bills itself as the “Pipeline Crossroads of the World.” It is home to a massive oil storage facility that’s touted as the world’s largest
