The Standing Rock Sioux tribe and its allies from other indigenous nations are protesting the construction of the Dakota Access pipeline. Once finished - the pipeline will bring oil almost 1200 miles from the Bakken oil fields in North Dakota all the way to Illinois. Although the project was approved by the government -the Standing Rock Sioux say their interests and historical claims were not taken into account when that decision was made. Which is why they've now brought their protest right here to Washington, DC. Today - the Standing Rock Sioux asked a federal judge to put the Dakota Access pipeline on hold. They also led a really outside the court - which was attended by people from around the country - including actresses Susan Sarandon and Shailene Woodley. Joining me now is the woman who MC'd today's rally - Bobbi Jean Three Legs - a Youth Organizer with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.
