Opponents of the Dakota Access Pipeline March Through the Streets of Phoenix

A large group of men, women, and children took to the streets of downtown Phoenix to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL). The controversial oil pipeline begins in North Dakota and is slated to run under the Missouri River at Lake Oahe, less than a mile north of the Standing Rock Sioux Nation's reservation. Friday's march was part of a growing grassroots movement to stop the DAPL, which protesters say threatens sacred land and the water supply for the Standing Rock Sioux Nation.
