Denver Marches in Solidarity with Standing Rock

Nearly 200 indigenous activists and allies marched through downtown Denver Friday afternoon in solidarity with the thousands of supporters who have traveled to join the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe's North Dakota encampment. The Denver march came a day after police blasted protesters demonstrating against the Dakota Access Pipeline with rubber bullets and teargas, arresting close to 150 people. Construction resumed Friday, but activists plan to continue to fight the project until Energy Partner Transfers, the company building the pipeline, ends operations. All photos by Kyle Harris.
