Water Protectors and authorities faced off after vehicles were burned in the night at a blockade on the Backwater Bridge on Highway 1806. After another round of tense standoffs between activists and law enforcement over the Dakota Access Pipeline, an uneasy peace settled over this region that has become ground zero for opposition to a $3.7 billion project that would move domestic crude oil across four states.Locations:Cannon Ball, North Dakota-North America-North Dakota-United States of AmericaDate:28 Oct, 2016Credit:© Richard Bluecloud Castaneda / GreenpeaceMaximum size:4974px X 3631pxKeywords:Climate (campaign title)-Drinking water-Flags-KWCI (GPI)-Outdoors-WaterShoot:Protest at Standing Rock Dakota Access Pipeline in the USThe public witnessed a new level of escalation on October 27, 2016 in the Native struggle at Standing Rock, as police swept through an encampment in the direct path of the Dakota Access pipeline (DAPL). The resulting standoff with the National Guard, and police officers from various states, led to 117 arrests. Advancing authorities attacked Water Protectors with flash grenades, bean bag launchers, pepper spray and Long Range Acoustic Devices (LRADs). It is crucial that people recognize that Standing Rock is part of an ongoing struggle against colonial violence. The Dakota Access pipeline (#NoDAPL) is a front of struggle in a long-erased war against Native peoples -- a war that has been active since first contact, and waged without interruption.
