On Thursday, nearly 150 water protectors were arrested by local and State police at a barricade in North Dakota near a pipeline construction site.

They were taken to the Morton County jail in Bismark for processing.

Most of them have been charged with various offence and released.

They’re settling back into life at the main camp – but for some, the transition hasn’t been easy.
