PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A large group of North Dakota pipeline protesters marched on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers building in Northeast Portland.

Those marching are against the Dakota Access Pipeline. It’s designed to move 470,000 barrels of domestic crude oil a day through four states.

Protesters believe the pipeline is an attack on tribal land.

During the gathering, hundreds of protesters chanted, beat on drums and prayed.
