Sanitation crews are working hard to dispose of six months' worth of garbage from a community the size of Wahpeton or Valley City. The mountains of debris need to be moved before the spring thaw occurs.
Making a dent in the immense amount of trash being hauled out of the Oceti Sakowin protest camp is being hindered by the weather. All the garbage that was left behind is now frozen into massive chunks of junk.
In a month, all this trash could become toxic.
"Standing Rock Environmental Protection Agency and Dakota Sanitation are working together to try and advert an environmental tragedy," says Tom Doering, Morton County Emergency Manager.
It's estimated it will take 250 trucks filled with litter to clear the camp. read more
A speech at UC-Berkeley by the tiresome Breitbart News bigot/provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos Wednesday night was cancelled after anti-free speech protesters became violent, throwing fireworks, setting fires and pulling down police barricades. "This is what tolerance looks like at UC Berkeley," said Mike Wright, a member of Berkeley College Republicans, the group that invited Yiannopolous. "It's sad." The protest became violent around 6 p.m. when dozens of masked anarchists emerged from a crowd of peaceful demonstrators who had made the argument that hate speech isn't free speech.
