Local Groups Protest Dakota Access Pipeline

Oct 11, 2016

Native Americans, environmentalists and allied groups in Ohio staged a rally outside of Columbus City Hall Monday, using prayers, speeches and traditional singing to protest a planned pipeline near native lands, and to call on Ohio to support more renewable energy.

The protest followed Sunday's federal appeals court decision allowing construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline to continue near the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe's reservation in North Dakota.
