22 arrested at protest on construction site

22 arrested at protest on construction site

A protest in downtown Peoria is aimed at stopping construction of a crude oil pipeline.

Morton County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Donnell Preskey says about 50 law enforcement authorities responded to the site near Glen Ullin late Tuesday morning.

"With a decision on the pipeline delayed indefinitely, the federal government shares in the responsibility of ensuring that peace and order are maintained", Gov. Jack Dalrymple said in a statement.

Energy Transfer Partners are developing a $3.8 billion Dakota Access pipeline, that once completed would travel through four states.

Sanders joined hundreds of activists, including members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and other tribal nations, who were gathering right outside the White House in Washington, DC on Tuesday.

The protests, three of which were in Colorado (Boulder, Fort Collins and Denver), were an effort to show solidarity with the Native Americans and others who are now camped out near Cannon Ball, North Dakota, in an effort to stop the construction of the controversial pipeline.

It's the issue that began at a North Dakota work site last week when two demonstrators chained themselves to machinery.

The Army Corps of Engineers is fighting against a tribe's court appeal to block construction on a contentious pipeline in North Dakota, but it supports an Obama administration review of the project.

Archambault said the consultations were one-sided and that "they met with us after their plans were already made".

The national protest is to show "solidarity with indigenous water protectors in North Dakota", said Judy Vershum of Canfield Township.

"At first it was like just getting wrapped up in it, should I step over and trespass, but I mean they can't arrest 2,000 people", she said.

Energy Transfer Partners disputes those claims, saying the pipeline would include safeguards such as leak detection equipment and that workers monitoring the pipeline remotely in Texas could close valves within three minutes if a breach is detected.

Part of the pipeline would cross Sioux lands and run under the Missouri River, the tribe's sole water source, drawing concerns from environmentalists and tribe leaders that a potential oil spill could devastate the reservation.
