    Key Discussion Points:
    1) Today we speak with Penobsoct Water Protectors June Sapiel and Dawn Neptune Adams, who are at Standing Rock, as police, federal agencies and the North Dakota National Guard move in to evict the Oceti camp at Standing Rock.
    2) Under the directive of a Trump executive order, the Army Corp of Engineers halted an Environmental Impact Study and issued the last easement needed by Energy Transfer Partners to lay the Dakota Access Pipeline across Standing Rock Sioux treaty lands, directly above their reservation and under the Missouri River’s Lake Oahe, source for the area’s water supply.
    3) Though legal challenges are still in court, the company has resumed construction of the pipeline.
