epaselect epa05629143 Native American protestors are joined by anti-Trump and other protestors as they march showing their opposition to the Dakota Access Pipeline, in Chicago, Illinois, USA, 12 November 2016. The 1,100 mile (1,770 km) long Dakota Access Pipeline, which is being built to bring Canadian and US Northwest oil to Chicago, has become a focal point of Native American rights because of its proximity to the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation and other parts that they believe infringe on their land.

Native Americans head to a rally at the State Capitol in Denver, Colo., Thursday, Sept. 8, 2016, to protest in solidarity with members of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe in North Dakota over the construction of the Dakota Access oil pipeline. The tribe argues that the pipeline, which crosses four states to move oil from North Dakota to Illinois, threatens water supplies and has already disrupted sacred sites.

Vittoria per i Sioux. Il genio militare americano ha bocciato l’attuale percorso previsto per l’oleodotto in Nord Dakota, contro cui da mesi i nativi americani si stanno battendo. Proprio in seguito alle proteste il progetto era stato fermato dall’amministrazione Obama per permettere allo Us Army Corps of Engineers di esprimersi. I nativi hanno sempre sostenuto che l’oleodotto e’ un enorme rischio per l’ambiente e per le falde acquifere dei loro territori.
