'Last stand': Protests erupt as Standing Rock Tribe vows court challenge to DAPL easement

'Last stand': Protests erupt as Standing Rock Tribe vows court challenge to DAPL easement | 09 Feb 2017 | In cities nationwide, Dakota Access Pipeline protesters are treating their cause with more urgency than ever since the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe vowed to fight President Donald Trump's executive memorandum expediting construction. In court documents filed on Tuesday, the US Army Corps of Engineers announced it would grant the final permit for the Dakota Access Pipeline, and cancel any further environmental impact study (EIS) that would allow the pipe to be laid beneath Lake Oahe. "Today's announcement will allow for the final step, which is granting of the easement," Robert Speer, Acting Secretary of the Army, announced in a press release.
