Video by New York Times reporter shows just how massive the Standing Rock protest camp is

The camp housing protesters of the Dakota Access Pipeline have come to resemble a small city with “streets” crisscrossing the prairie between the tents, teepees, and quickly-erected shacks where the protestors have dug themselves in, according to photos and videos posted by reporters on the ground. 

Thousands of protesters have gathered in Cannon Ball, North Dakota since August to protest the building of the Dakota Access Pipeline, a proposed 1,172-mile pipeline enabling North Dakota-produced oil reach refining markets in Illinois.

USA Today estimates that there are between 1,000 and 3,000 protestors living in the camp. Another 2,000 veterans are set to join the protestors, as well as relieve those who have endured weeks of sub-zero temperatures. 

Here’s New York Times reporter Jack Healy’s video from the camp:

The federal government announced in November that they would close public access to the area on December 5, but authorities have since said they don’t have plans to forcibly remove activists. 

While the protests have mostly been peaceful, there’s been clashes with local police and authorities on a number of occassions. In late November, police sprayed water cannons on protesters and deployed tear gas cannisters in below-freezing temperatures. Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirchmeier said in a press conference that the water cannon was used to “repel” protest activities when demonstrators became “aggressive.” Activists maintain they were peacefully demonstrating at the time.

The protests began because the pipeline is set to run beneath the Standing Rock Sioux reservation in North Dakota. The protestors’ chief concern, beyond fossil fuel emissions, is that the pipeline may contaminate drinking water and habitats across the entire Missouri River basin.
