Crazy Lee Posted November 16, 2016 Share Posted November 16, 2016 http://www.inforum.com/4158594-column-what-dakota-access-pipeline-protesters-arent-telling-you#.WCnmM8QbPmE.facebook So, this article is basically saying that the pipeline company and army corps tried to have town hall meetings several times with the local tribes to field complaints about the pipeline, ages ago when it was still in the planning stages. But no one showed up. The company even offered to move the water inlet for the tribal areas. But no one bothered to protest it back then. I don't know how true this is, but I have heard similar stories from other locations as well, so there may be some serious weight to it. So if this is true, why did the natives ignore the company in the past? Was there just not a good enough effort on outreach by the oil company? Or was it that the natives felt they had nothing to say to the company and were snubbing them on purpose? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
