Several dozen people attended a peaceful rally and demonstration to show solidarity with Standing Rock, N.D. activists on Monday in Akwesasne. Holding the flag is Jesse Beeson, who along with Steven Thompson-Oakes organized the event. The group demonstrated on state Route 37, then hosted a gathering with speakers at Generations Park. The demonstrators in Standing Rock, N.D. activists are trying to stop Energy Transfer partners from building an oil pipeline through Standing Rock Sioux territory, which they say threatens their drinking water and sacred sites. The Army Corps of Engineers recently announced they would deny ETP an easement to build the pipeline on Standing Rock territory and are exploring other avenues.
