I had only heard about the North Dakota pipeline issue when Shailene Woodley was arrested for trespassing. And I’ll admit I know about Kylie Jenner’s latest lip kit than about the North Dakota pipeline issue. Doing some more research into this issue, I had come to realize how important this issue is and how this pipeline could take away the millions of people’s water supply as well as destroying the Native Americans’ sacred ground. In the article, it stated that 269 people were arrested for protesting since August 10, but I had only ever heard about one person being arrested. While the hashtag #freeshailene was trending, why wasn’t the other 26 people arrested for her recognized? Most importantly, shouldn’t #NoDDPL be trending instead?
