Opponents of Dakota Access Pipeline protest at SF’s Federal Building

Dozens gathered outside of San Francisco’s Federal Building Wednesday, February 8 to protest the recent approval of the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota by President Donald Trump and one day after the U.S. Army announced preparation to greenlight the final stage of the $3.8 billion project’s construction. Around 13 demonstrators were arrested while they silently occupied the front entrance of the Federal Building. Photos by Jessica Christian/S.F. Examiner.
