Winter weather and emergency evacuation won’t stop DAPL protesters

(CNN) – After nearly five months of protest of the Dakota Access Pipeline, officials are turning up the pressure…telling demonstrators to leave now or face the consequences.

Officials issued a December 5th deadline for demonstrators to leave the protest site, and warned protesters Tuesday that they’ll start blocking supplies and people from entering the campsite.

Neither the official warnings nor the howling winter weather seem convincing. North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple warned protesters about the winter weather – which will only get worse. He said that first responders will no longer be responsible for rendering aid to those who decide to stay.
