Sioux Vow to 'Stand Strong' as Judge Paves Way for DAPL Oil to Flow

Nadia Prupis, staff writer

The Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) could be operational by next week, after a U.S. district judge in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday ruled against two tribes who had asked him to issue a preliminary injunction pausing construction.

The Standing Rock Sioux and the Cheyenne River Sioux said their legal battle would continue, despite Judge James Boasberg's ruling.
