This graphic by Eric J. Garcia speaks to this article in Common Dreams about the victory for the Standing Rock Sioux tribe of North Dakota. In March, a federal judge ruled that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers violated the National Environmental Policy Act by approving federal permits for the Dakota Access Pipeline.

Eric J. Garcia blends history, contemporary themes and a graphic style to create politically charged art that reaches beyond aesthetics. To see more of his work and follow him visit his website:
