Today the president green lighted the Dakota Access Pipeline. The pipeline will run through the Standing Rock tribe's water supply...the land will become inhabitable. This angers me because activists worked for months in order to stop the construction of the pipeline--and we thought we had won the fight. I worry that this will be the first of many actions that the president will take against the environment, and in favor of oil and business.
