The Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) is a 1886 km conduit slated to carry crude oil from North Dakota to southern Illinois when it’s completed by the end of this year. Since its approval in late July, the project has sparked outrage. On September 10th, protests at the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota reached a boil- ing point, with violent attacks on protesters by security dogs and numerous instances of macing.

Protests began this summer as the Standing Rock Sioux, the indigenous Nation whose source of drinking water will be crossed multiple times by the pipeline, led a lawsuit to block construction of the pipeline. ousands of people, representing members of Nations from across Turtle Island and their supporters, have converged in Standing Rock to continue to resist the ongoing colonization of land and water.
