PST November 12, 2016 CONNECT TWEET LINKEDIN GOOGLE+ PINTEREST Hundreds of people marched through Tacoma to show support for the tribes gathered at the pipeline protest site in North Dakota.Among the crowd, a man who calls Standing Rock home. For Matt Remle, the Dakota Access Pipeline protest is personal. "Those sacred sites, that's where we go to pray, if anybody is religious, goes to church or synagogue or mosque and they're being bulldozed they'd be upset too," Remle said. Remle and hundreds of others marched through downtown Tacoma to show support for the months-long standoff about a thousand miles east of here. Demonstrators want President Obama to take a stronger stand against the project before Donald Trump is sworn in. This march is also calling attention to a local project, a liquefied natural gas plant that Puget Sound Energy is planning to build in Tacoma. They want to harness the momentum that's kept the Dakota Access Pipeline demonstration in the headlines, and use it to highlight environmental issues closer to home.
