Seattle protesters locked out of Ballard Locks, but still rally against Dakota Access Pipeline
SEATTLE – A group of protesters feel locked out from being able to voice their concerns. Tuesday night, hundreds gathered in Ballard to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline. But the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers closed the Ballard Locks to them. The controversial pipeline would transport oil from North Dakota to Illinois, traveling 1, 170 miles. Several Native American tribes argue the construction of the pipeline threatens the environment and violates treaty agreements.
