1. Military breaking another promise?

Have they moved out yet? There was a fire? Way to go M$M... no body knows what is really happening in the country. This whole thing is a travesty. So disgusted.

2. A few weeks ago there were burning tires and vehicles on that bridge. The bridge is off limits

until it is inspected for safety. The military police have agreed to leave the bridge today at 4pm.

3. Standing Rock: authorities will retreat from bridge if protesters agree to terms

Excerpt:

North Dakota authorities have said they will move away from a key bridge near the main Dakota Access pipeline protest camp by Sunday afternoon if demonstrators agree to certain conditions.

A Morton County sheriff’s office news release detailed the conditions as outlined on Saturday by the Cass County sheriff, Paul Laney.

“The question was asked if we would consider pulling back from the Backwater Bridge,” Laney said of a conversation between law enforcement and the organizers of Veterans Stand for Standing Rock, a group that will arrive on the reservation Sunday.

“And the answer is yes! We want this to de-escalate.”

Authorities will move from the north end of the Backwater Bridge by 4pm on Sunday, they said, if protesters stay south of the bridge in the Oceti Sakowin camp, where thousands are camped out in protest against the four-state, $3.8bn pipeline, and come to the bridge only if there is a prearranged meeting with law enforcement.

Authorities also asked protesters not to remove barriers on the bridge, which they have said was damaged in a late October confrontation that led to several people being hurt, including one serious arm injury. Protesters also are not supposed to walk, ride or fly drones north of the bridge, Laney said.

Standing Rock Sioux tribal chairman Dave Archambault has been asking for the bridge blockade to be removed, the Bismarck Tribune reported, saying he would to talk to Governor Jack Dalrymple in person. A date for that meeting has not been set.

4. The bridge could be a future flashpoint, even as ACE leaves. I can see why protectors are staying.
