In the midst of it all, a large group of protesters remains at the temporary camps on the northern edge of the Standing Rock Sioux reservation. The movement, which started in early 2016, had small roots but grew into the thousands, drawing support from native Americans from across the country, as well as activists who joined in solidarity against the proposed route Of the 1000 172 Mile Dakota Access pipeline just north of the reservation. Last week those protests won a concession from the federal government. The Army Corps of Engineers announced it would deny the permit necessary to build the oil pipeline in that area. And now, with an eye toward the impending winter weather, the chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe in north Dakota is asking people camping near the route to go home. Mhm. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, mm. Mhm. Mhm, mm. Yeah.
