Police have invaded the camp (which is on private land), mass arrested protectors, and dismantled tipis.
Alternative Media Syndicate reports that reports are rolling in that police had taken down tipis and burned whatever remained.
Many of the live streaming videos were blocked, but some were able to get them through on Facebook.
The Santa Monica Observer reported, “It appears that police stormed the camp on Wednesday afternoon, arresting camp leaders and sending the others off in their cars, but denying access for them to retreat to the main camp. They have set fire to anything left at the camp.”
Donald Trump, who owns shares in DAPL parent company Energy Transfer Partners, has ordered the Corp of Engineers to expedite pipeline construction. The legality of the order, which could bypass environmental and historical evaluations, has not yet been heard in court. Local law enforcement has chosen to use the order as an excuse to cast people out into the cold and destroy their possessions, despite the fact that the camp is located on private land and the police are trespassing.
