The pipeline would be used to transport crude oil from North Dakota into Illinois but would cross the Missouri River a mile away from the Standing Rock Reservation and threaten residents’ drinking water.
“We stood to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline all day… Through the rain. And hope Obama heard us. Please sign the petition if you haven’t,” Riley wrote on her Instagram.

The pair held up signs and marched with others to stop the transport of crude oil from North Dakota into Illinois. The pipeline would interfere with Native American territory (the Standing Rock Reservation). Shailene has been posting videos from the protests on Facebook.
“We need to stand together; we need to wake up. We cannot let the fossil fuel industry continue to walk over all people in this country and especially Native American people,” Shailene said in one post.

The ladies were also joined by Danny Glover while supporting Turner, a Bernie Sanders backer who says she was kicked off the DNC program without any reason given.
Rosario and Shailene spoke with The Young Turks about Nina and why they are skeptical about Hillary Clinton being the Democratic nominee.
“If you tell someone, ‘You have to vote for this person to prevent A, B, C and D,’ I don’t think there’s going to be much momentum,” Shailene said.
“When I’m at the DNC and I’m seeing Trump’s name everywhere because ‘Love Trumps Hate,’ I want to know that that love is actually there. Saying that you’re better than Trump is not saying very much … I think it’s important that [Sanders supporters’] votes are earned and not just expected to be delivered,” Rosario said.
