Standing Rock: Officials won't blockade supply deliveries but will discourage them

Katerina Rocker Heppe: Don't try to silence voices at Standing Rock

Officials say the new loan should cover the state's cost of policing protests over the $3.8 billion pipeline through December.

Some 2,000 veterans will join demonstrations against the Dakota Access Pipeline with the idea of giving a break to protesters who have engaged in the standoff for months.

He also talked about false reports that law enforcement used grenades on protesters during a skirmish ten days ago.

Two-thousand veterans have signed up and the Oceti Sakowin protesters' campsite can not hold more veterans than that, but about 1,000 more have said they plan to come, Parker said. The veterans plan to set up on December 4 and will stay at least through December 7, she said. However, the land includes historically indigenous land, and Standing Rock water protectors have vowed to stay there, according to the Associated Press.

It's the federal government's job to peacefully close the camp because it allowed people to stay there in the first place, Gov. Jack Dalrymple said in a statement Saturday. "They don't' want those people's water to be poisoned so we end up dealing with that same ... here". "I can't believe the media hasn't taken more of an interest in this".

The Army Corps, which reviews pipeline-construction permits for the US Department of Interior, has said it's seeking additional information from the Standing Rock Sioux, who object to the pipeline because it threatens sacred tribal lands and would pollute water from the Missouri River's Lake Oahe reservoir as part of the project's four-state, almost 1,200-mile route.

The 1,885 km pipeline project, owned by Texas-based Energy Transfer Partners LP, is mostly complete, except for a segment planned to run under Lake Oahe, a reservoir formed by a dam on the Missouri River.

Dalrymple says requests for reimbursement from the federal government have been unsuccessful.

The Morton County Sheriff's department has denied using water cannons and concussion grenades, but eyewitness accounts, as well as video footage, reveal they are not being truthful about their tactics.

Not only do protesters trying to stop an oil pipeline in North Dakota have to battle a blizzard, they now are facing an eviction by order of the state's governor.

The veterans say their action will not be violent and they will have no weapons. "Right now our land is to be left unprotected if we are to leave this space", Wise said.

However, the governor's order drew a rebuke from Standing Rock Sioux chairman Dave Archambault, who called it a precursor to further human-rights violations of the protesters, who have been attacked by police dogs and blasted with water cannons during frigid weather. As of Wednesday night, the campaign had raised $692,240.

Koehler also performed that night during the STL Rocks for Standing Rock, an event they organized.
