Protesters return to DAPL Monday, some say in response to MLK Day
Morton County, ND (WDAY News) - One of the biggest Dakota Access Pipeline protests in a month is happening right now.
They approached the officers who were on the opposite side of a barbed wire fence.
Some called out Martin Luther King Junior Day as a reason for the protest.
As the crowds grew and yelled at officers, the video shows law enforcement formed a line with shields.
Video feeds of the event now show protesters have since cut a barbed wire and are approaching police.
Earlier Monday, authorities say protesters also gathered on the Backwater Bridge and tried cutting down a wired barricade.
Authorities say three protesters have now been arrested.
