We reported a few weeks back that actor Mark Ruffalo was joining the people of Standing Rock to fight the Dakota Access Pipeline. Now he is bringing some of his superhero friends along, as the Avengers stars are fighting the Dakota Access Pipeline as well.
The Dakota Access Pipeline is a new project that consists of an approximately 1,172 mile, 30-inch diameter pipeline that will connect North Dakota to Illinois. The pipeline will be used to transport crude oil.
The pipeline would cross the Missouri River, which is one of the largest water sources in the U.S., provides drinking water for millions.
The Great Sioux Nation, who live in the region, warn that an oil spill in the river would be detrimental to the water and overall health of their land.
It is always great to see celebrities using their fame and power to give a voice to people who don’t have one.
