ST. ANTHONY, North Dakota -- Standing Rock water protectors moved in mass, by the hundreds, and halted construction at multiple sites of Dakota Access Pipeline, where work was supposed to be halted.
'The roads were blocked -- the eagle guided us," said one of the Lakota women, among hundreds who rushed to the sites to halt construction.
Pipeline workers fled as water protectors arrived. Police arrived in riot gear with a sound cannon, acoustic weapon, which has not been used as of now.
Water protectors shook the hands of the police officers.
"We are going to come back every day until we shut this pipeline down," said one of the Lakota men protecting the land, water and air for future generations.
"As long as they're not working -- we're winning my Relatives," he said, with thanks to the Horse Nation for being here, on Treaty land.
In the news:
Five arrested at road blockade which allowed protectors to get to site:
