  1. On Tuesday morning, President Trump signed an executive order that advances the construction of Dakota Access Pipeline

    The executive orders will allow the heavily protested Dakota Access and Keystone XL oil pipelines to move forward.

    Additionally, the president also signed an executive order to expedite environmental reviews of other infrastructure projects, describing them as “incredibly cumbersome, long, horrible permitting process," reported The Washington Post

    Last year, the Standing Rock Sioux tribe and other Native American groups were joined by protesters to resist the building of the pipeline. Many warned that the pipeline would pollute their water supplies and disturb sacred burial and archaeological sites.

    In December, the Army Corp of Engineers called a halt to the project. President Obama said in his final months in office that the project would contribute to climate change.

  6. After the news was announced, protesters and sioux tribe members began organizing rallies and demonstrations
