Standing Rock: Visible Victory - Army Corps Denies Easement for Dakota Access Pipeline Crossing - ABC News - 4 December 2016

I had earlier written about the dark agenda against the Indigenous Sub-races and Mother's sacred energies - may this be the beginning of the end of such atrocious oppression.

The Department of the Army will not approve an easement that would have allowed the proposed Dakota Access Pipeline to cross under Lake Oahe in North Dakota, the Army's Assistant Secretary for Civil Works announced today in a statement.

The Army claimed in a statement that Assistant Secretary for Civil Works Jo-Ellen Darcy based her decision on a need to explore "alternate routes for the Dakota Access Pipeline crossing."

Native American groups and environmental activists have been protesting since summer to block construction of the 1,172-mile pipeline that would have cut across four states and transport crude oil from North Dakota's oil fields to refinery markets in Illinois. The activists, who call themselves "water protectors," say that the pipeline traverses culturally sacred sites and poses a risk to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe's water supply.

"Although we have had continuing discussion and exchanges of new information with the Standing Rock Sioux and Dakota Access, it's clear that there's more work to do," Darcy said, regarding the decision. "The best way to complete that work responsibly and expeditiously is to explore alternate routes for the pipeline crossing."
