See How Twitter Is Reacting to the Shocking #NoDAPL Decision
When news broke Sunday afternoon that the Dakota Access Pipeline project would not be allowed to move forward with their current plans, shock waves crisscrossed the country (and beyond!) as people rejoiced the decision. Not only a victory for the thousands of Standing Rock protesters who stood their ground night and day against seemingly unbeatable forces, it’s also a glimmer of hope during these dismal days. With so many reasons to celebrate this development, folks took to Twitter to share their reactions to the shocking #NoDAPL decision.
Most folks were overwhelmingly happy and thankful…

Some are still watching things carefully…
Stay ahead of the hype folks. If there's talk of ETP moving forward, don't let it draw attn. But keep a wary eye out. #NoDAPL

#NoDAPL victory shows that peaceful protest works, but we need true revolution in order to stop fascism from rising in America.
