Your Call: The Standing Rock Sioux pipeline protest
On the August 30th edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about the growing protest at the Sacred Stone Spirit Camp in North Dakota. For weeks, thousands of Native Americans have joined Standing Rock Sioux tribe members in their protest against the construction of the $3.8 billion Dakota Access oil pipe.
The Standing Rock Sioux tribe says the pipeline would disturb 300 sacred sites and impact drinking water from the Missouri River. Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.
