People who claim to care about the environment left enough evidence behind at a recent protest site to make others wonder about their sincerity.
Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall tweeted aerial footage of the Dakota Access protest camp Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota showing fields of trash left after the so-called “environmentalists” abandoned the site.
“It’s unfortunate,” one man said. “It goes against what they’re fighting against — leaving that stuff and abandoning it.”
One hundred people have been helping to clean up the mess. Locals think it will take “weeks” to get rid of all the waste. They’re being forced to chip away at snow and ice that has been buried by the protesters.
