A witness described it as a hate crime and said the driver yelled obscenities at a crowd protesting about Columbus Day and the North Dakota oil pipeline.
Despite the arrests and ongoing attacks toward unarmed people, the fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline is far from over.
The officers responsible were from the Morton County Sheriff’s Department, the same department that sent officers armed with mace and attack dogs against the protestors earlier this month.
“It is long past time for us to abandon fossil fuel projects that harm native communities and threaten the future of our planet.”
Those with something to gain from the Dakota Access pipeline want us to believe the energy company is an overburdened victim.
A federal appeals court will consider whether to delay the project further.
The use of political bots and sock puppets is nothing new and in fact, has become normalized by political factions worldwide.
We will fight this charge. Freedom of the press is essential to the functioning of a democratic society. North Dakota, muzzle the dogs, not the press.
