Protestors from the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and others against the Dakota Access Pipeline are telling people to login to Facebook and check in at the Indian reservation. Tires burn as armed soldiers and law enforcement officers stand in formation on Thursday, Oct. 27, 2016, to force Dakota Access pipeline protesters off private land where they had camped to block constructio.
The fund is among several cash streams that have provided at least $3 million to help with legal costs, food and other supplies to those opposing the almost 1,200-mile pipeline.
The fund is among several cash streams that have provided at least $3 million to help with legal costs, food and other supplies to those opposing the almost 1,200-mile pipeline. The tribe wants observers from the US Department of Justice to probe the use of force by police, said Sue Evans, a spokeswoman for the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.
More than $1 million has been raised by a GoFundMe campaign launched by protester Ho Waste Wakiya Wicasa, who says the money will go to supplying the camp where protesters are living. "I'm here to make a change, and we have to do it this way, then we're going to have to do it this way".
The incident occurred near a Dakota Access protest camp where demonstrators have been protesting the almost 1,200-mile, four-state pipeline.
Members of the Standing Rock Sioux and other supporters are trying to halt construction of the almost 1,200-mile pipeline that the tribe says threatens its water sources and cultural sites.
The protest escalated last weekend, when demonstrators set up camp on private land along the pipeline's path that had recently been acquired by Energy Transfer Partners. Meanwhile, the tribe's appeal is still pending in federal court.

Ranieri added that, while Ahmed Musa is expected to be fit for Wednesday, his fellow forward Islam Slimani will not be risked after missing Saturday's 1-1 draw at Tottenham with a groin injury.
The $3.7-B, 1,100-mile Dakota Access would be the first to carry crude from the Bakken shale, a vast oil formation in North Dakota, Montana and parts of Canada, to an existing pipeline in IL through which it could be shipped to refineries along the US Gulf Coast.
But running a camp - and readying it for North Dakota's brutal winter - isn't cheap.
Authorities cleared protesters from the camp Thursday using shotgun bean bag rounds and pepper spray. It has also paid for a storage area, composting toilets, tiny houses, tepees, a medical area and generators powered by solar panels and wind.
"It will contaminate all of the Missouri, it will contaminate everything below it, it will destroy our animal friends, plants, it will destroy people's lives", said Hamer. "Right now, we are feeding 670 people". "This about looking ahead for future generations and protecting our water".
But, tribal leaders say operations from officials are violent and some in Rapid City say now is the time to act.
Energy Transfer Partners has said construction is almost complete elsewhere. SO water protecters are calling on EVERYONE to check-in at Standing Rock, North Dakota, to overwhelm and confuse them. He said it was only after other tribes, including the Red Lake Nation and the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community in Minnesota, inquired about financial contributions that leaders chose to accept money for legal costs.
Sandra Chasing Hawk, 37, a Standing Rock Sioux member who has been at the protest camp for months, said joining the movement has been a religious experience for her.
Among the donors to online fundraisers is southern New Hampshire resident Carol DiPirro. But on the day the judge ruled, three federal agencies stepped in to order construction to halt on Army Corps-owned land around Lake Oahe, a wide spot of the Missouri River, while the Corps reviewed its decision. While there they have access to bathroom facilities, meals and drinking water.
