Is This the End of New Oil and Gas Pipelines?

Following an environmental review, a federal judge ruled that the Dakota Access Pipeline must be shut down. This is a huge deal as this pipeline stretches from North Dakota all the way to Illinois. Additionally, the Supreme Court declined Trump’s request to build a new pipeline known as the Keystone XL pipeline, and two other pipeline constructions were cancelled as well.

Let this be a reminder that our voices matter and have large impacts! Without the voices of environmentalists and indigenous people, these pipelines would still be here today ruining our environment and taking the land of indigenous people.
