Just 12 years old, Alice Brownotter leads a crowd of hundreds in a rally against a major oil pipeline.
“We can’t drink oil,” they chant. “Keep it in the soil.”
She’s protesting the Dakota Access Pipeline, which is slated to cross under the Missouri River, just upstream of her home on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in south-central North Dakota.
“When it goes through - or if - and when it breaks, it will affect everyone,” Alice said.
