She says they are being warned that people who enter private property or property owned by the Army Corps of Engineers will be arrested.
President Barack Obama has called for "peace" and "restraint" on the disputed Dakota Access oil pipeline, and says the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is examining whether the four-state project can be rerouted in southern North Dakota to alleviate the concerns of American Indians.
In August, the company announced it had sold nearly 37 percent of the project to Enbridge Energy Partners, the company that developed the Keystone XL pipeline, and Marathon Petroleum Corp.in a deal worth $2 billion.
The rally, set for 10 a.m.at Eisenhower Park.is one part of the effort, she said.
After an inspection, company consultants made a decision to divert the construction by about 50 feet, even though they determined there was a "low likelihood" any additional artifacts were buried nearby. There were no immediate confrontations between group members and authorities, and no arrests, Morton County sheriff's spokesman Rob Keller said.
Tom Iverson said 14 people were arrested in the Capitol's judicial wing for refusing to leave the building. The same land was cleared of a protest encampment last week, with more than 140 people arrested in the process.
Police shooting suspect charged with murder
In the first shooting, investigators believe the gunman walked up to the officer's auto and fired more than two dozen rounds. So far, there are no indications that either of the slain officers had any previous interactions with Greene, police said.
The proposed 1,100 plus mile-long pipeline would extend from North Dakota to IL and carry around 470,000 barrels of crude oil each day.
"It would take some time to do that, but it seems to me to be a much safer route and it wouldn't need to cross culturally sensitive land", he said. The conduit is meant to bring up to 570,000 barrels of crude oil daily from fracking fields in North Dakota to IL, passing through territory that historically has belonged to Native Americans.
Picha said he was notified in a timely manner of the most recent discovery in a new area but didn't report it to the commission because he thought the pipeline company would. On the other hand, Vicki Granado, spokeswoman for the Energy Transfer Partners pipeline company, said in a statement, "We are not aware that any consideration is being given to a reroute, and we remain confident we will receive our easement in a timely fashion".
He also noted that the rerouting isn't unusual. Hundreds of clergy sang hymns and marched near the route of the pipeline.
The agencies also said the Corps would hold a series of meetings with tribal groups this fall to look at ways to improve consultation with them on major infrastructure projects. "People of Bismarck were concerned about the safety of that siting, and so it was changed away from that and immediately upstream from the access point of water for Native Americans".
