Leave a comment

A spate of oil spills in recent years has opened the nation’s eyes to the potential dangers lurking in the thousands of miles of aging and overlooked pipelines buried beneath neighborhoods, farms and waterways—as well as to the surge in new pipelines being expanded or built to keep up with the oil and gas boom.

Activists held a rally in support of a lawsuit against the Army Corps of Engineers "to protect water and land from the Dakota Access Pipeline," and to call for "a full halt to all construction activities and repeal of all pipeline permits until formal tribal consultation and environmental review are conducted."
