An arrest warrant has been issued in North Dakota for the Green Party’s presidential candidate, Jill Stein, and her running mate.
Stein and Ajamu Baraka joined protesters of the Dakota Access Pipeline on Tuesday afternoon, and the presidential candidate took a can of red spray paint and wrote “I approve this message” on a bulldozer.
“We’ve got to turn this around and stop the continuing desecration of our climate, the desecration of indigenous sacred lands and their gravesites, to protect their indigenous sovereignty and to protect human rights,” Stein said in a Twitter video.
