Reporter & presidential candidate wanted for trespassing at pipeline protest

Authorities in North Dakota have issued an arrest warrant for Democracy Now! investigative journalist Amy Goodman, lodging Class B misdemeanor charges of trespassing against the reporter who documented security personnel with guard dogs attacking protesters, according to court documents.

Goodman, a New York resident, broadcast video showing private security forces working for Dakota Access Pipeline unleash attack dogs at the pipeline protest site, where guards have been widely criticized for the violence.

Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein and her running mate, Ajamu Baraka, are wanted by police for criminal trespass and criminal mischief.

Authorities also charged Cody Charles Hall, 39, of Eagle Butte, S.D., with trespassing after identifying him from video and photos. Hall, a Red Warrior Camp organizer , was arrested by police who stopped him Friday in a vehicle with expired license plates.

At least 38 people have been arrest in connection with the Dakota Access construction site, where native Americans are objecting to an oil pipeline that would jeopardize drinking water and the ancestral sacred burial grounds.
