'Snowden' actress arrested while filming Dakota Access Pipeline protests live
Actress Shailene Woodley arrested during pipeline protest
Video: Actress Shailene Woodley films own arrest
[NOTE] - Protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline have been going on since April of this year. The corporate media didn't start covering it until late September. I seem to recall Hillary Clinton finally addressing the issue after media coverage increased. This was long after assertive protests by Susan Sarandon, Shailene Woodley, Bill McKibben, Bernie SANDERS, and Green Party presidential candidate, Jill Stein. Stein has a warrant out for her arrest, for her bold stand on this issue. ACTION, not WORDS.
It riles me how the DNC Democrats will (finally) stand by this protest, or the plight of the wild horses in Nevada, but they will rail against the Bundy protests as being "terrorist", even though it represents another actual minority who are being confronted by the same menace: Government-backed corporate land-rapists. I also noted comments in ONTD_political which somehow lambasted Jill Stein for being weak on issues, when she actually dared to get herself arrested.
And now, here are some past articles, which were hidden behind the headlines, like, "Donald Trump hates the Muslim guy who spoke at the DNC convention, (and is a plant by the CIA)."...

September 13: Bernie Sanders stands with Native Americans; say oil pipeline will poison drinking water
WASHINGTON — Sen. Bernie Sanders called on President Obama to take action against the controversial Dakota Access oil pipeline during a protest outside the White House on Tuesday with members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and other tribal nations...
Vermont author and environmentalist Bill McKibben, a key Sanders supporter who co-founded 350.org, skewered Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in a Sept. 7 Los Angeles Times op-ed calling on her to take a stand on the pipeline. He suggested a connection between her reticence and support from the fossil fuel industry and banks.
“The people who’ve built Clinton’s campaign war chest and her personal fortune are the same people who paid for the dogs that bit young native Americans,” wrote McKibben, who was tapped by Sanders to serve on the Democratic Party’s platform drafting committee.
A Clinton spokesman did not respond to a request for comment.
[Note]: That's right, where was Hillary Clinton on this? Jill Stein got herself arrested protesting this issue. Susan Sarandon spoke out before it was national news. Donald Trump is an idiot for not grabbing this, being attached at the hip with the Status Quo GOP. And...
[Elizabeth] Warren wrote that the company will meet with officials in Washington “to understand their position and reiterate our commitment to bring the Dakota Access Pipeline into operation.”
Sanders interpreted Warren's memo -- which states "the right of way for the entire pipeline has been obtained" -- as a refusal to halt construction while a new review takes place.
