Pipeline developer buys ranch near North Dakota protest camp

Pipeline developer buys ranch near North Dakota protest camp

Members will deliver supplies to protesters at the camp, and the Tribe will make a $15,000 donation to the protest.

"The Lenape Indian Tribe of DE stands in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in calling for the Army Corps of Engineers to halt this pipeline and initiate an administrative process that includes full Tribal input and consultation".

Rapid City, S.D.: 8:30 a.m. -12:30 p.m. on November 17.

KX News of Bismarck reported that David Meyer said he sold the land to Dakota Access for liability reasons, that there were too many people on his property all the time and that it was a handsome ranch but he "just wanted out". "This pipeline is cutting through their sacred lands and is a threat to their environment".

Spokesmen for the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers were not immediately available for comment. The integrity of sacred sites, historic resources and archeological resources are also at risk, according to the Band's resolution.

The lawsuit alleged that the pipeline, which would be placed less than a mile upstream of the reservation, could impact drinking water for more than 8,000 tribal members and millions who rely on it downstream.

The tribe, whose cause has drawn thousands across the globe to join their protest, has challenged the Army Corps of Engineers' decision to grant permits for the $3.8 billion, 1,172-mile (1886 km) pipeline that would ship North Dakota crude through South Dakota and Iowa to IL. Financial terms between ETP and the Meyers do not have to be disclosed under state law because the land has been reclassified from agriculture to industrial, the state Tax Department said. "If constructed, this pipeline will continue to encourage oil consumption that causes climate change, all the while harming those populations who contributed little to this crisis". That has not prevented the company from continuing its work elsewhere, however.

The encampment has been called the largest gathering of Native Americans in a century, and the first time all seven bands of Sioux have come together since Gen. George Custer's 1876 expedition at the Battle of Little Big Horn.

Federal government agencies intervened in mid-September after a district court ruled in favor of the pipeline construction, calling for a temporary halt to construction on parts of the pipeline until the Army Corps of Engineers can determine a full range of environmental and other federal policies.

The Standing Rock Sioux tribe has taken its case to the United Nations, addressing the human rights commission in Geneva on Tuesday.
