Well celebrate the victory of the denial of the easement for installation of the Dakota Access Pipeline by the U.S. Army

Jeffrey Haas, civil rights attorney who joined the legal team at the Standing Rock Camp in North Dakota, where Native Americans and others have been protesting to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline joins us to talk about the momentous occurrence, and why the struggle isnt over and the ligation that remains over the violence perpetrated against the protectors.

The pipeline demonstrators injured by rubber bullets, water cannons and tear gas canisters during the wintry nighttime standoff with police two weeks ago have filed a class-action lawsuit against the sheriff of the North Dakota county involved. The suit describes in new detail the evening of November.20, when more than 200 people protesting the Dakota Access oil pipeline were injured by less-than-lethal weapons. The lawsuit alleges
that sheriffs deputies and police officers used excessive force when they deployed impact munitions,like rubber bullets, as well as explosive tear gas grenades and water cannons against protesters. It argues that the tactics were retaliatory, punishing those involved for exercising free speech rights.
