At least 22 people were arrested today near a Dakota Access Pipeline construction site in North Dakota. Two people had locked down to machinery and stopped construction on the site when 50-60 riot police showed up.
With their assault weapons drawn, the riot police surrounded a large group of peaceful water protectors on the site and arrested them without warning. After those arrests were made, the riot police moved towards a group of support people on a public road and specifically targeted and arrested members of the media.

While the Obama administration has halted some work on the Dakota Access Pipeline near the camps, construction continues in many other areas. We must stay vigilant until the whole project is cancelled once and for all.
The battle is intense on the front lines, but we won't back down.
