    US GREEN Party presidential candidate Jill Stein confirmed yesterday that she’ll appear in court over her role in a protest against a new oil pipeline.

    Ms Stein acknowledged that she spray-painted construction equipment in North Dakota on Tuesday in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux, who say a planned $3.8 billion (£2.9bn) pipeline to take oil from North Dakota to Illinois will poison drinking water and threaten sites sacred to their tribe.

    Huge protests against the pipeline were held across the week in three states, with demos in Omaha, Nebraska, Tulsa in Oklahoma and Denver, Colorado, taking place on Thursday.

    The Yankton Sioux have sued federal regulators for approving the pipeline, filing lawsuits against the US Army Corps of Engineers and the US Fish and Wildlife Service on the grounds that the route passes through the tribe’s treaty lands and will “destroy sites of enormous cultural importance.”
