The KXL pipeline spilled 383000 gallons of oil onto North Dakota wetlands. The exact shit the indigenous water protectors told us would fuckin happen. Too many were stuck in a colonized mindset lambasting and doubting all who were #NODAPL and #NOKXL. So to fully unpack of where to lay blame. The Obama administration initially broke the treaties that allowed these lines to run through tribal lands that serve as preserves for natural resources including waterways. The Army Corps of Engineers actually argued against the pipelines which held up the black snake’s progress until Trump came in and disrespectfully ignored them. And now there’s poison leaking all over the wetlands. As it rains the oil will make its way to the rivers and also further bleed black into the soil. So on top of all of the brutality committed against the water protectors now the North Dakota landscape has been irreparably damaged. It’s a continuation of manifest destiny.
