A protest is taking place each Friday in Yellow Springs to express concerns about the proposed Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota. The pipeline would cut through the Standing Rock Indian Reservation and Native Americans believe it will potentially harm their water, as well as causing other environmental damage.

The protest takes place at the Speedway gas station in Yellow Springs, where about 35 people gathered last Friday. The event takes place at Speedway because the company’s parent company, Marathon, is a major investor in the pipeline.

For more information on the weekly protest, go to YS NaPL Protest group on Facebook.

A more detailed story on local efforts in support of the Native Americans is in the Nov. 17 Yellow Springs News.
