Locals rally to support Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s protest of pipeline construction

Around 40 people joined arms in a demonstration on the Broad Street overpass in Nevada City Tuesday afternoon to support the Standing Rock Sioux tribe’s opposition to the construction of the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline by a Texas company. The event, organized by the local chapter of Sierra Club with support from Nevada County Climate Change Coalition and the Peace and Justice Center for Nevada County, was a part of the National Day of Action to show solidarity for the tribal members who voiced concern about the project’s impact on their local water supply and sacred sites.
