"Deadline Looms For Dakota Access Pipeline Protest Camp"

"As dawn breaks over an encampment that was once home to thousands of people protesting the Dakota Access oil pipeline, a few hundred holdouts rise for another day of resistance.

They aren't deterred by the threat of flooding, nor by declarations from state and federal authorities that they must leave by Wednesday or face possible arrest.

They're determined to remain and fight a pipeline they maintain threatens the very sanctity of the land."
