01/24/18 – Implications of the Malheur/Dakota Access Pipeline Protests (encore)

In October, 2016, members of a group that occupied Oregon’s Malheur National Wildlife Refuge for 41 days were acquitted of preventing federal employees from doing their jobs. On the day of the acquittal, law enforcement officers arrested nearly 150 protesters of the Dakota Access Pipeline, leading some to draw parallels between the two occupations. What are the implications of the acquittal and what does the future hold for such protests? In this episode, as part of a month long retrospective on my favorite Elemental Idaho episodes we’re playing in preparation for transitioning to our new program, Vital Idaho I talk with Public Lands Policy expert John Freemuth.

This is an encore episode of Elemental Idaho. You can hear the original broadcast here.
