Water Protectors again took to the streets in Bismarck and Mandan to spread their message and voice their opposition to the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline. Each day they were met with a small contingent of pro-DAPL counter protesters as well as a heavy police presence – leading to Cass County law enforcement actually beating a veteran and placing a hood over his head as he was taken into custody (after picking a flower). Water Protectors demonstrated outside the National Guard headquarters, the Wells Fargo Bank, the ND State Bank, the federal building, the Morton County Jail and Courthouse.
