Iowa‘s segment of the DAPL is in the ground now, but a court challenge could prevent anything from being pumped through it. Kathy Holdefer of Jasper County, IA, who was arrested during a civil disobedience protest against the pipeline, explains the state law restricting the use of eminent domain that undergirds their case.

Kathy also shares with TYT‘s Eric Byler how she felt about the construction process, which went on day and night and, she felt, endangered her granddaughter. And, she called out Gov. Terry Brandstad (Republican) for arranging for the right of eminent domain to be transferred to an out-of-state oil transfer corporation. Energy Transfer Partners threatened to take her land and then ended up taking the land of her neighbors.

At about 5 a.m. on Wednesday morning, January 25, a Magellan Midstream Partners petroleum pipeline ruptured in northern Iowa, about 124 miles north of Des Moines, spewing an estimated 3,300 barrels (about 138,600 gallons) of diesel fuel onto farmland in Worth County, just over the Minnesota state line. Monitoring technicians at Magellan headquarters in Tulsa, Oklahoma noted a fall in pipeline pressure early that morning and shut down the 127-mile-long segment from Mason City to Rosemount, Minnesota. The spill follows by one day the signing of an executive order by President Donald Trump to revive the Dakota Access Pipeline and the Keystone XL Pipeline projects: here.
