Breaking: Obama Admin Halts Dakota Access Pipeline Construction after Months of Resistance

On Sunday the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers denied the Dakota Access pipeline company a permit to drill underneath the Missouri River-officially halting construction of the $3.8 billion oil pipeline that has faced months of resistance from the Standing Rock Sioux in North Dakota and members of more than 200 Indigenous nations from across the Americas, as well as their non-Native allies.

Gandhian Satyagrah by Native Americans, Veterans and good people halt the pipeline. Amy Goodman herself spared no effort in publicizing the effort.
Oil price drop is good news as it threatens the very economics of a pipeline dedicated to shipping excess North Dakota crude when production continues to fall. There are enough, rail and alternate pipeline routes available to take care of existing production.
