MANDAN, N.D., Oct. 22 (UPI) -- Police in North Dakota arrested 83 protesters after violent clashes at the construction site of the Dakota Access pipeline on Saturday morning.
A group of protesters walked some three miles off the nearest road with a large all-terrain vehicle, slashed its tires and fastened themselves to the machine, according to the Bismarck Tribune. One individual chained herself to the steering wheel. Another man put his arm through a hole in the vehicle's door, than put his hand in a bucket of dried cement. The protest happened in rural Mandan, N.D., where workers are installing the 1,172-mile oil pipeline that will run from the oil fields in North Dakota south as far as Illinois.
