Dakota Access Protest: Nothing Says “We Love The Environment” Like Burning Things And Leaving Garbage

(Before It's News)

Then there’s the whole “protest peaceably” thing (via John Sexton)

(AP) The last people remaining at a Dakota Access pipeline protest camp prayed and set fire to a handful of wooden structures on Wednesday, hours ahead of a deadline set by the Army Corps of Engineers to close the camp.

Some of the praying protesters said burning the structures — which appeared to include a yurt and a teepee — was part of the ceremony of leaving. As heavy rain turned to snow, some said they expected no trouble during the eviction, despite a heavy law enforcement presence.

“People are being very mindful, trying very hard to stay in prayer, to stay positive,” said Nestor Silva, 37, of California. “I am not aware of any plans for belligerence.”

Don’t forget, many leftist places, especially in California, have tried to ban bonfires because they are bad for ‘climate change.’

Once the main camp is cleared of people, the cleanup of trash and debris that’s being coordinated by the tribal, state and federal governments will continue. More than 1,000 tons of waste had been removed by contractors as of early Tuesday, though dozens of semi-permanent structures remained, according to Herr. Dozens of abandoned vehicles also remained, according to George Kuntz, vice president of the North Dakota Towing Association.

Sounds just like every Leftist protest. Tons of garbage, and, hey, look, fossil fueled vehicles. But, hey, it’s OK, because they’re spreading awareness.
