EAGLE BUTTE, South Dakota -- Cheyenne River Lakotas blocked this Keystone XL truck and forced it off their land on Monday. Tribal police escorted the truck off Lakota land. Thanking those who blocked the truck, Chairman Harold Frazier said anyone working with Keystone XL is not welcome here. Chairman Frazier said unlike the United States, free speech and standing up for the law are welcome here.
Chairman Frazier said, “Any vehicles or personnel working on the Keystone XL pipeline are not welcome on this reservation. Unlike the United States we welcome free speech and concerned citizens standing up for the law. This is Sioux Territory, we will not stand for more encroachments and defilement of our land. I would like to thank the tribal members who brought this to our attention and stand with them in our opposition to the KXL pipeline.”
Taco John's guy under the truck
One of the workers from Taco John's rushed out, got under the truck to stop it, and then went back to work.
When the cops were trying to turn the truck around, the guy was still under the truck, said one of those present.
"So the dude moved from under the truck, when they said it had to turn around."
"The Taco John's guy went right back into work after he got up."
