Hundreds rallied against the North Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) project in Pasadena on Monday during the annual Rose Parade, which is a traditional part of New Year’s celebrations in the California. Protesters carried banners reading “No DAPL” and “Water is life” as they sang Native American songs and chanted slogans against the project. Although the Army Corps of Engineers has halted the construction, the participants expressed concern that the new administration may turn it back. Since its official approval in August of 2016, and even before, the project has sparked a wave of protests among Native American communities, North Dakota locals, and across the US.
