News Alert!!: Cannon Ball, ND: Army Corps of Engineers denies route for the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline.

News Alert!!: Cannon Ball, ND: Army Corps of Engineers denies route for the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline.

The Army Corps of Engineers has denied the current route for the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline on Sunday, December 4th, 2016 in North Dakota.

The Army Corps released a statement saying it would not approve the easement that would have allowed the proposed pipeline to cross under Lake Oahe, a large reservoir on the Missouri River in North Dakota.

In the statement, Army Corps’ Assistant Secretary for Civil Works Jo-Ellen Darcy said, “Although we have had continuing discussion and exchanges of new information with the Standing Rock Sioux and Dakota Access, it’s clear that there’s more work to do. The best way to complete that work responsibly and expeditiously is to explore alternate routes for the pipeline crossing.”

The planned route for the 1,172-mile Dakota Access oil pipeline would have run within a half-mile of the Standing Rock Sioux reservation, crossing beneath the Missouri River.

Cheers broke out as word spread through the protest camp in Cannon Ball, North Dakota where protests have been going on for months.

Standing Rock Sioux Chairman Dave Archambault II tells NBC News that he was “thankful that there were some leaders in the federal government that realized that something is not right even though it’s legal.”

“This is something that will go down in history, and I know that it’s a blessing for all indigenous peoples,” said Standing Rock Sioux Chairman Dave Archambault II.

As the news spread, cheers and cheers and chants of “mni wichoni” – “water is life” in Lakota Sioux – broke out among the protesters and some of the people in the crowd began banging drums.

Despite that cheers by protesters over the decision, many of the protesters remained cautious, saying that they don’t know what President Elect Donald Trump is going to do.

“The whole world is watching,” said Member of the Standing Rock Sioux Miles Allard adding “I’m telling all our people to stand up and not to leave until this is over,” said Member of the Standing Rock Sioux Miles Allard.

The pipeline protest has become the largest gathering of Native Americans in modern history and support for the people of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has grown, including support from the Colorado River Tri-State area in the community of Needles, California.

According to Drucilla Burns, an octogenarian and tribal elder with the Fort Mojave Indian Tribe, “Water is what we’re made of. We’re supposed to be the protectors of the land and water.”

The show of support by Fort Mojave Indian Tribe was seen by band members who wore t-shirts showing their support of the Standing Rock Reservation as they marched in the 40th Annual Fort Mojave Indian Days Parade held in Downtown Needles, California on Saturday, October 15th, 2016.

Opponents says that the pipeline project would adversely affect and threaten drinking water and disturb sacred tribal sites.

** Video from NBC Nightly News: **

For months, protesters, include Native American tribe members and non-members as well as activists, have set up camp in protest of the pipeline being build.

Over the last few months, tension over the pipeline project has erupted into clashes between protesters and law enforcement personal.

Reports of some protesters setting fires near the Backwater Bridge, a bridge leading up to the pipeline and throwing objects at law enforcement personal dress in riot and military gear and armed with tear gas, batons, rubber bullets, pepper spray, and water cannon.

Law enforcement personal brought in dogs, armor vehicles, and helicopters as protesters set up a campsite with tents, bonfires, and supplies for what many protesters say will be a long fight.

Nearly 300 people have been arrested since August 2016, including a celebrity and some journalist, and videos of the clashes and arrests have been seen on social media video sharing websites.

The proposed 1,172 mile pipeline project cost $3.8 billion dollars, would produce 570,000 barrels of oil a day, and would across North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, and Illinois.

United States of America President Barack Obama’s Administration several times asked that Energy Transfer Partners, the company behind the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline project, to stop construction.

Energy Transfer Partners, the company behind the pipeline project, denounced the decision by the Army Corps as “a purely political action.”

In a statement, Energy Transfer Partners said, “The White House’s directive today to the Corps for further delay is just the latest in a series of overt and transparent political actions by an administration which has abandoned the rule of law in favor of currying favor with a narrow and extreme political constituency.”

In November 2016, Energy Transfer Partners Chief Executive Kelcy Warren told NBC News that he was “100 percent sure that the pipeline will be approved by a Trump administration,” regardless of what the Army Corps ultimately decides.

At this moment, no comments or statements has been release from President Elect Donald J. Trump over the decision by the Army Corps regarding the pipeline project.

Former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders said in a statement, “I appreciate very much President Obama listening to the Native American people and millions of others who believe this pipeline should not be built.”

But North Dakota Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp said the decision did not come soon enough.

In a statement, North Dakota Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp said, “This administration’s delay in taking action — after I’ve pushed the White House, Army Corps, and other federal agencies for months to make a decision — means that today’s move doesn’t actually bring finality to the project. The pipeline still remains in limbo,”

North Dakota Republican Senator John Hoeven said the decision by the Army Corps violates the rule of law and fails to resolve the issue.

“The decision violates the rule of law and fails to resolve the issue. Instead, it passes the decision off to the next administration, which has already indicated it will approve the easement, and in the meantime perpetuates a difficult situation for North Dakotans,” said North Dakota Republican Senator John Hoeven.

On Twitter, House Speaker Paul Ryan wrote, “This is big-government decision-making at its worst. I look forward to putting this anti-energy presidency behind us.”

Meanwhile, federal officials had given protesters a deadline of Monday, October 5th 2016 to vacate the camp because of worries about the plunging temperatures.

According to the Attorney General Loretta Lynch, the Department of Justice will continue to monitor the situation and stands ready to provide resources to help all those who can play a constructive role in easing tensions.

“The Justice Department remains committed to supporting local law enforcement, defending protesters’ constitutional right to free speech and fostering thoughtful dialogue on the matter,” said Attorney General Loretta Lynch added, “The safety of everyone in the area – law enforcement officers, residents and protesters alike – continues to be our foremost concern.”
