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.

Many around the country have thrown their support behind the tribe’s outrage, including a lot of celebrities. Shailene Woodley was even arrested while protesting.

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!


A few celebs even took to Instagram, including Mark with an extra message, to share:

Dakota Access Pipeline Denied by Army Corps of Engineers! No win is ever permanent but we can rejoice today because together we created greater justice in the world, we opened the door to heal the old wounds sustained by our indigenous people. President Obama will leave the White House as a great chief of America for this. We must all thank the Native Youth who started this movement who started the camp and ran all over the USA to stop this from happening. It is for them, the unborn and the voiceless that we persist in the struggle. We must also have compassion for the Police who were on the other side of this struggle but are still our brothers and sisters. #BlackEagle #standingrocksioux #peacefulwarrior #NoDAPL #LegacyA video posted by Mark Ruffalo (@markruffalo) on Dec 4, 2016 at 2:25pm PST

We’re definitely interested to see what other solution the Army Corps of Engineers comes up with, but until then, we’re cheering for the Standing Rock Sioux!
