On 5 December 2016 The Washington Post reported: Activists fighting to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota welcomed new developments after the Army [United States Army Corps of Engineers] said Sunday that it will not approve an easement. Protesters saw the announcement as a key victory for Native American tribes and others who have flocked in recent months to protest the oil pipeline, which tribal leaders say threatens lands and artifacts they consider to be sacred. Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the fields of culture and government, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.

The latest wave of activism surrounding the pipeline has brought a diverse range of groups together, including representatives from religious communities such as the United Methodist Church and the Nation of Islam, who have visited the camps or spoken out against the pipeline project.
