Amid near continuous harassment and frequent arrests by police, members of over 300 Native American tribes gathered on native land in North Dakota continue to block construction on the Dakota Access pipeline. Despite some pressure to halt construction from the U.S. government, builders continue to make progress on the 143-mile Dakota Access pipeline. But opposition to the project is ramping up, too. Thirty people were arrested at a pipeline construction site in Iowa on Sunday, and demonstrations have also occurred outside banks that are financing the project.
