“We are without a doubt protesting what the pipeline is doing, we are trying to stand-up, unite with each other, and draw up a bigger crowd, a lot of people do not understand the immediate effects to the ground, to the water, to the atmosphere, to the wildlife.” said Louis Moncivias Leader of Camp Trail Deer.
