Texans React to Pipeline Protesters Trashing the Environment

Thursday, February 09, 2017

While protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline, "environmentalists" brought heaps of trash to the region. Tarps, broken tents and other garbage now litter the North Dakota landscape at the Oceti Sakowin protest site. The protesters have since left, but local cleanup crews are stuck cleaning up the loads of frozen debris that could soon turn toxic. Some of the Dakota Access protesters have traveled to Texas to protest another pipeline, raising concerns about whether they’ll create the same mess here. We asked Texans how they felt about the issue and here are some of our favorite responses.
