Proof that your voice can be heard!
Over the weekend, protesters at the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota had A LOT to celebrate as the Army Corps of Engineers refused to grant permission to extend the project under a Missouri river reservoir!
The Dallas-based Energy Transfer Partners' four-state, $3.8 billion endeavor has faced protests for MONTHS. The Standing Rock Sioux believe the current proposal would potentially threaten their water source and just want to find another solution.
Now that the Energy Transfer Partners were denied their permit, the ACE has vowed to look into rerouting the pipeline!
Even though this is a HUGE victory, several protesters have said they're staying put to see things out, at least for a bit, while other supporters — including A-listers like Mark Ruffalo and Taraji P. Henson — took to Twitter to share their excitement!
Ch-ch-check out all the celebs who threw some love towards the cause (below), and let us know if you're happy about the decision to reroute the pipe!
