Dozens of #NoDAPL supporters have been arrested after the latest clash with police near the construction site of the controversial Dakota Access pipeline.

These latest clashes come after news the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said it would allow the company to continue construction of the multi-billion pipeline the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe says is threatening their drinking water.
