Around 100 protesters against the Dakota Access Pipeline are defying North Dakota governor's eviction notice, choosing to remain at the Oceti Sakowin camp in an act of non-violent resistance. Most of the camp was burned earlier in the day.
The US Army Corps of Engineers will grant the final easement necessary to finish construction on the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline, according to a court filing. President Donald Trump had issued an executive order to review the project quickly.
The Army Corps of Engineers may reach a decision over the approval of construction on the Dakota Access Pipeline as soon as Friday. If approved, construction in the disputed territory could resume before the Army Corps complete an environmental impact analysis.
