Sit-in and huge rally at Corps of Engineers is followed by march past Trump Hotel to White House against DAPL

On the 15th of November, water protectors from Standing Rock reinforced by a huge crowd of supporters beseiged the US Army Corps of Engineers HQ in DC with a sit-in and rally. This was the day after the Corps of Engineers delayed any easement for Energy Transfer to drill under the Missouri River for the Dakota Access Pipeline or DAPL. A march to the White House afterwards drew a surprise guest: Bernie Sanders spoke there.
