Just days into his presidency, Trump (showing how much he’s kissing up to Big Oil) signs Executive Orders rushing along the Army’s environmental assessment and allowing the Dakota Access Pipeline to continue.

On November 15, 2016, hundreds protest the proposed pipeline in cities across the country, with familiar faces like Bernie Sanders (in Washington DC) and Susan Sarandon (in Los Angeles) joining in.
