Contractors continued cleanup activities in the Oceti and Rosebud camps.BIA announced that all protesters have vacated the Sacred Stone Camp at approximately 2:50 pm and that contractors would begin clean up of the area.  Three arrests were reported.  BIA has established hard checkpoints to prevent anyone from re-entering the area.  (The Sacred Stone Camp is on the south side of the Cannonball River in Sioux County – it is directly south of the location of the previous Ocetic Sakowin camp).
At approximately 2:00 pm, a group of approximately 10 protesters staged a demonstration in front of the Federal Courthouse located in downtown Bismarck.  The demonstration was apparently to protest the grand jury process in which several DAPL protesters have been involved.  There were no significant problems and no arrests and the protesters dispersed within approximately one hour.
