DES MOINES (AP) — About two dozen environmental demonstrators are undertaking a 100-mile march to protest the Dakota Access oil pipeline.
They began their eight-day trek Saturday in Des Moines, the Des Moines Register reported.
Advocacy groups Bold Iowa and Indigenous Iowa organized the march to show unity against the $3.8 billion, four-state pipeline.
Protesters plan to walk 10-15 miles a day, completing the march Saturday in Fort Dodge.
A U.S. Army Corps of Engineers study of the pipeline released last week says it poses no significant environmental threats.
