Celebrations, tears of joy, drumming and chanting rang out among thousands of protesters after the US Army Corps of Engineers declared that they would not grant a permit to allow the Dakota Access Pipeline to cross under Lake Oahe in North Dakota. The $3.8 billion project, also known as the Dakota Access pipeline, was expected to move crude oil across the Midwest.  For months, members of the Sioux tribe and its allies have camped out, fighting against a pipeline they say would be hazardous to the water supply of their nearby reservation. They stood in the path of the pipeline, protesting peacefully, and bringing in violence when they felt the need. According to CNN, the Army says the plan should be “carefully restudied, and alternative routes should be deeply considered.”
