At noon on Feb. 9, a day after the Army Corp of Engineers reversed its decision and gave the go-ahead to the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL), 150 people gathered in downtown Saint Paul to denounce this ruling. After a brief rally, the activists marched through the streets chanting, “You can’t drink oil, leave it in the soil,” “1, 2, 3, 4! Pipelines, genocide and war. 5,6,7,8! America was never great,” and “Mini wiconi, water is life.”

The march stopped at the Army Corp of Engineers office, but the building was locked down. Then they marched to U.S. Bank and Wells Fargo Bank, which have investments in this project.

Nina Berglund, a 17-year-old student at the Gordon Parks High School in Saint Paul, said,
“We are here in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and also for the future; for my children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.”

Rallies and marches opposing the pipeline continue around the country as activists vow to continue the fight.
