Bay Area Standing Rock Protest Targets Banks

Hundreds of people gathered in San Francisco Tuesday to protest the controversial Dakota Access oil pipeline. Demonstrators clamored banks to discontinue financial support for the 1,200-mile long pipeline, which is scheduled to transport crude oil from the Dakotas to Illinois upon completion. At the heart of the ongoing battle between protesters and Energy Transfer Partners, the pipeline's developer, is the issue of the pipeline's potential impact on clean drinking water supplies and Native American cultural sites.
