Eric Fanning, Assistant Secretary of the Army, has told tribal leaders that the Army Corps of Engineers will stop construction on the controversial Dakota Access pipeline, according to the chairman of the standing Rock Sioux tribe on Sunday.

Law Enforcement Launches Riot Against Standing Rock Protesters

“Police are tear gassing #NoDAPL water protectors, using the LRAD, stinger grenades, and firing less-lethal rounds into the crowd on Highway 1806 bridge in North Dakota,” reports We Are Change’s Luke Rudkowski. “Police have formed a line with armored vehicles, concrete barriers, and razor wire. It is 27° and police have begun hosing down the unarmed crowd with a water cannon. Water protectors are using a semi truck in an attempt to remove burnt military vehicles which the police chained to concrete barriers weeks ago to keep the bridge blocked on 1806.”
