What I really like about the North Dakota Pipeline Protest is that the Native American Indians are standing up for their sacred lands. We have wronged them in so many ways by taking their lands and subjugating their people so long ago. Since we pretty much forced them off their land without giving them any rights, I think it is fair that we leave the Mississippi River alone. It is very shocking that police officers have pepper-sprayed at these peaceful protesters. Unlike the Trump protesters, they are not causing any violence and are just fighting for their sacred beliefs. I am usually annoyed of protesters on the news fighting for stupid things but I really support this one.
