Article Paints an Ugly Picture of #NoDAPL Fundraising

Remember the Veterans Stand for Standing Rock organization?

Militarized Police Officers Were Not Why the #NoDAPL Protests Were Violent

Were the #NoDAPL protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline violent because they were perpetrated by political extremists who pick fights with cops as a way to draw attention to their case? Or because the cops equipped themselves thoroughly against that threat? A lawyer for the activists says it’s the latter in response to an Associated

Sophia Wilansky Got Hurt Because the #NoDAPL Movement Used Violence as a Tactic

Over the weekend the New York Post ran an unfortunate profile of #NoDAPL activist Sophia Wilanksy.

Congressman Cramer Signs Letter Urging Department of Justice to Address Environmental Extremism

Those of us who live in North Dakota got an object lesson in the realities of the sort of political extremism which has metastasized under the umbrella of environmental activism. We saw zealots flock to the south central part of our state to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline, and while some of the protesters were

Video: Anti-Oil Zealots Shut Down Public Hearing on Line Three Pipeline

The political extremists in the anti-oil movement have promised to make Enbridge’s Line 3 replacement project into the next #NoDAPL movement. Given that the protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline were hugely violent, and saw millions of dollars worth of vandalism and economic damage perpetrated in the region, the folks of Minnesota should feel a sense

If We’re Going to Preserve the History of #NoDAPL, How About We Document All of It?

News is that the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian is going to preserve an 11.5-foot-tall mile-marker post made by Hickory Edwards which was displayed at one of the #NoDAPL camps during the protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline.
