Dakota Access Pipeline protesters setting fire to their camp ahead of an enforced evacuation
Dakota Access Pipeline protesters have started setting fire to their camp ahead of an enforced evacuation deadline Wednesday.
Earlier, several demonstrators declared they would not leave the site and instead were bracing for a stand-off with law enforcement.
Video footage from the scene shows a heavy law enforcement presence including local police, US Park Rangers and Federal Wildlife Officers.
Since last August, the Oceti Sakowin camp in North Dakota has served as the base of operations for many Native Americans and environmental activists as they protested the pipeline project which they say threatens the water supply of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.
