'Would You Tear up St. Peter's in Rome?' Voices From the Dakota Pipeline Protest November 25, 2016
This week, we travel to the wide open plains of North Dakota. That's where members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, along with hundreds of protestors from around the country, have gathered to stop construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. The tribe says that if completed, the pipeline could pollute their only water source, the Missouri River. Our producer Abigail Holtzman camped out at the site recently to learn why this story isn’t just about oil... it’s about sacred ground.
