Faced With Massive Opposition to Dakota Access, Banks Could Still Pull Out

Bill McKibben

Most Americans live far from the path of the Dakota Access pipeline—they won’t be able to visit the encampments on the Standing Rock Sioux reservation where representatives of more than 200 tribes have come together in the most dramatic show of force of this environmental moment. They won’t be able to participate in the daily nonviolent battle along the Missouri River against a $3.7 billion infrastructure project that threatens precious water and myriad sacred sites, not to mention the planet’s unraveling climate.

And your point is?

That sure has worked out well- If we had any semblance of A "Democratic Government", none of this shit would be happening in the first place... That is like appealing to MSM for media coverage of these peoples plight...
I believe McKibben is on the right track here by illuminating the bottom line of this industrie's revenue- Some old fashioned exposure to civil disobedience may just be key here....
Have any other ideas from the sidelines?
