“Bismarck qualified for the extra protections, Standing Rock did not, nor did the crossing at the Des Moines River”
Ferocious protesters at the Des Moines River in Iowa watched as DAPL drilled under their source of drinking water. Federal laws that prioritize and protect larger population areas aren’t extended to rural people who surprisingly also drink water!

If you feel helpless go picket your local Sunoco station or Wells Fargo branch!
