Victory in Fight Over Dakota Access Oil Pipeline

According to NY Times – The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe won a major victory on Sunday in its battle to block an oil pipeline being built near its reservation when the Department of the Army announced that it would not allow the pipeline to be drilled under a dammed section of the Missouri River.

There are 2.5 million miles of oil and gas pipelines in the United States. But thanks to a coalition of Native American and climate activists, about 20 miles of one of them—the the Dakota Access Pipeline—will now be rerouted away from a Sioux Reservation, according to statements from President Obama.
