The fight between the Standing Rock Sioux and ETP over the Dakota Pipeline is a classic case of how money talks and the little guy gets screwed. The pipeline was originally planned to run through Bismark, North Dakota but they objected citing that it would pollute their water supply. Same thing the Standing Rock Sioux are concerned about. Good reason. The EPA said the proposed monitoring system and shut-off mechanisms are insufficient and that spills are certain. Lamestream media coverage has been minimal, preferring the election freak show.
Support the Standing Rock Sioux.
