Twitter Reacts To The Dakota Access Pipeline Being Blocked

After months of protests in North Dakota, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers announced today that they would block the Dakota Access Pipeline from crossing underneath a reservoir that they own. 

The multi-billion dollar pipeline, which runs close to the Standing Rock Sioux Native American Indian reservation, will now have to be redirected away from Standing Rock. 

“I am thankful there were some leaders in the federal government that realized something was not right even though it’s legal,” said Standing Rock Sioux Chairman David Archambault. “For the first time in history… they heard our voices. This is something that will go down in history and is a blessing for all indigenous people. I heard the Army Corps of Engineers will not grant the easement and they will reroute.”

Unsurprisingly, reactions on Twitter have been mixed.
