- As the pipeline enters its final phase of construction in North Dakota, where most of the resistance to the pipeline is located, Energy Transfer Partners and its hired contractors have escalated tensions with protestors to protect the project as it enters its final phase. The State of North Dakota has also taken to protecting the pipeline.
In the most stunning demonstration of pure evil or ‘wetiko’, as Paul Levy describes in his latest piece, the sacred buffalo are being targeted as well. Yesterday, Indigenous Rising Media released a video showing a large group of wild buffalo being herded into an enclosure surrounded by 8 foot deep trenches and razor wire.
Current reports from the area claim that the buffaloes are being held without food or water for days. It has also been reported that the construction company building the pipeline has threatened to kill the buffaloes as they could “interfere” with the pipeline’s completion.
