On Thanksgiving morning, over 100 protesters marched along Highway 6, the main access route to the DAPL access site. They continued to the Front Line - the bridge where three vehicles had been torched and where protesters were beaten, gassed, and sprayed with water cannons. Amidst megaphone threats from the militia, "Stop or be fired upon!" - the peaceful protesters halted before the bridge. Courtesy of Lee Eversole
Shortly after reaching the Standing Rock protest site, nine members of the Fort Lewis/Durango contingent avow support for the DAPL protesters and the Sioux Nation sovereignty. Courtesy of Lee Eversole
