09-12-2016 15:00

Some people want to put oil pipes under a reservoir in North Dakota, USA. Native Americans and climate activists protest. They win their protest. Now they are celebrating! 

The oil pipes project is dangerous. It can be bad for land and water. Thousands of people come to North Dakota. They support the protesters.

Some Native Americans come from Washington State. They wait for bad news. But they hear the best news! It is the best news for the Native Americans, for the United States and for all people. They are very happy now. Water is so important!

Difficult words: pipe (a tube for moving something like water or oil), reservoir (a manmade lake), support (help).
