(Reuters) – Federal officials and North Dakota’s governor on Thursday refused to extend next week’s evacuation deadline for activists living in camps that have been a base for months for demonstrations against the multibillion-dollar Dakota Access oil pipeline.

Opponents of the 1,170-mile (1.882-km) line met with officials from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Republican Governor Doug Burgum and the state Department of Transportation on Thursday morning, asking to be given more time to remove their belongings and waste from the camps.

In a statement on Thursday evening, Burgum and the Army Corps refused to extend next Wednesday’s deadline. Army Corps spokesman Ryan Hignight said contractors working for the agency would enter the camp as soon as they could.

“We’re not going to necessarily wait for the 22nd,” Hignight said.

Time to go home or find your next protest to attend.

That would be an interesting thread over on MFAB

So they'll escalate by what...sending in armed goons to evict them? Or use machinery to intimidate them...I'm guessing they're moving now before the court has a chance to rule on the issue.

Actually I believe the court has ruled on the issue of the protesters on the Army Corps land. They have to be off by the 22nd. The problem is that there are sanitation issues that the government needs to clean up so the squatters gotta go. If the get in the way then they will probably be removed by force.

The kid gloves and navel gazing times ended when Obama was shown the door.

When they damaged equipment the first time they should have bombed the entire place to CS gas and then used LRADs mounted on armored vehicles to push the people of the land.

Allowing them any leeway whatsoever was kid gloves.

The naval gazing is what all of the protesters were doing. I actually know someone who was up there with them protesting, the guy is a bit of a flake so he fit right in. I got to see all kinds of great photos from inside the camp.

I do believe they destroyed and set fire to some equipment. I would have taken that escalation by them as their announcement that they were ready to be removed by force.

Exactly what is it that you consider peaceful about arson and people lobbing Molotov cocktails?

If they committed such a criminal action, I don't have a problem arresting those directly responsible for it (isn't that what we on the right preach, a sense of personal responsibility, while the left promotes groupthink?) and not the protest as a whole.

I am sure that they will be welcome to continue their protests over on the Standing Rock lands.

I don't think the Corps is doing any drilling.

Good news though, the drilling is going well, far better than expected. At the rate they are going it looks like they should be able to get all of that drilling equipment out of there in 30 days, maybe less. They were thinking it would take a couple months but I guess global warming is working in their favor. :victory:

They will suppress the Indian uprising...If they don't return to the reservation, the Indians will be chased to the Canadian border by Air Calvary......... :victory:
