Dakota Access: North Dakota Capitol Shut Down After Day of Clergy-Led Protest

About a hundred anti-Dakota Access Pipeline protesters and clergy held a prayer rally on the lawn of the North Dakota state Capitol in Bismark on Thursday evening, ending in a police-ordered lockdown of the Capitol and more than a dozen arrests. Highway Patrol Lt. Tom Iverson said 14 people were arrested in the Capitol’s judicial wing for refusing to leave the building. Iverson said the protesters, who were holding a sit-in and singing prayer hymns, faced disorderly conduct charges. Watch video here
