Oil will be flowing in the Dakota Access pipeline by March 20 and more likely by Monday, according to Energy Transfer Partner’s latest court-filed status update, but members of the Standing Rock Sioux and Cheyenne River Sioux tribes vowed to continue efforts to shut the $3.7 billion pipeline down at both a press conference Wednesday and a national protest in Washington D.C. that was to conclude today with a march on the Capitol.
