Chattanoogans Protest Dakota Access Pipeline
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) — Hundreds of Chattanooga residents say they’re standing with Standing Rock.
They held a solidarity march Sunday at Renaissance Park to show their support for the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation.
This group says it supports the tribe, and is against the Dakota Access Pipeline.
They say the pipeline will destroy the tribe’s land.
“It’s unbelievable what these people are having to endure in the face of adversity,” said protester Ron Williams. “They get arrested for what I saw was trumped up charges. They go to jail. They come back three days later and get right on the front lines again.”
Protesters also collected donations for the Southeast to Standing Rock Supply Mission, which they will deliver to North Dakota on Monday.
