More than 400 people gathered Saturday in downtown Annapolis to stand and march in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe of North Dakota.

Attendees carried signs that read: “water is life,” “native rights = human rights” and calls for Sen. Cardin to reject the pipeline.

The protest began with speakers from various tribes and grassroots and national organizations detailing their respective concerns with the Dakota Access Pipeline’s construction.
