Protest of Standing Rock pipeline on Friday
- Published: November 17, 2016
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.
