Dakota Access Pipeline


40 people were arrested in southeastern Iowa on Monday after protesting the installation of the Dakota access pipeline where it intersects with the Mississippi river. Protesters were inspired by the actions of those at the standing rock camps in south Dakota where they recently got construction halted by the federal government due to successful peaceful protests. The construction plan at this southeastern site is to drill underneath the Mississippi and send thousands of gallons of crude oils from South Dakota to Illinois. Those protesting think the advantages of this are far outweighed by the dangers.
