According to the Associated Press, Dakota Access Pipeline protesters between the pipeline site and the Standing Rock Sioux reservation will have to decide their next steps today, as the Army Corps of Engineers plans to shut down the camp.

The Oceti Sakowin camp was established as a DAPL protest site more than six months ago. But as it sits on federal land in Southern North Dakota, arrests for the hundreds who remain at Oceti will begin at 2 p.m. CST.

So what does this mean for the protesters at Oceti? Larry speaks to the Bismarck Tribune’s Lauren Donovan, who reports from the camp.
