Shailene Woodley leads two person protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline
While although Shailene Woodley‘s recent protest in New York against the Dakota Access Pipeline was not all that too well organized (only consisting of she and one other person), star power counts for allot.
Shailene isn’t the only celebrity to publicly oppose the Dakota Access Pipeline although, Leondaro DiCaprio (http://www.ecowatch.com/leonardo-dicaprio-stands-with-great-sioux-nation-to-stop-dakota-access-1891129155.html) has also shown support in efforts against it, as well as various other celebrities such as even new Aquaman star Jason Momoa.

The Dakota Access Pipeline Project is a new approximate 1,172-mile, 30-inch diameter pipeline that will connect the rapidly expanding Bakken and Three Forks production areas in North Dakota to Patoka, Illinois.
The pipeline will enable domestically produced light sweet crude oil from North Dakota to reach major refining markets in a more direct, cost-effective, safer and environmentally responsible manner. The pipeline will also reduce the current use of rail and truck transportation to move Bakken crude oil to major U.S. markets to support domestic demand.
It will transport approximately 470,000 barrels per day with a capacity as high as 570,000 barrels per day or more – which could represent approximately half of Bakken current daily crude oil production.
Shippers will be able to access multiple markets, including Midwest and East Coast markets as well as the Gulf Coast via the Nederland, Texas crude oil terminal facility of Sunoco Logistics Partners.
