Our “Water Wars video” series chronicles the uniting of the Tribes of the Oceti Sakowin to stop the Dakota Access pipeline (DAPL). In the eleventh chapter, we look at the oil company’s refusal to honestly address the worst case scenario when the Dakota Access pipeline inevitably leaks under increased capacity. As demonstrated Dec. 8 after the Keystone pipeline increased its flow, pipelines grow more devastating when they carry more oil — with real consequences for the land, animals, and people.
