I'm just a casual, indifferent observer. The protest seems kind of absurd and unreasonable from the facts and doesn't reflect well on the protestors..

Know why the pipeline goes through here? Cause another city blocked it out of concern for their drinking water.

This is epic level "not in my backyard" with a white city just saying no, and the indians saying no, but then a company using a militarized police to make it happen.

Just how long do they think their pipeline will operate with this many people against it?

This is insane.

Given all that was taken from the Native Americans, I find this a less than compelling argument.

Where is Wild Bill Cody when you need him? He would have shown you how it gets done.

Not exactly. We are a nation of too much more recent immigration though.
