I can’t drink oil

A young girl holds a small placard reading "I Can't Drink Oil" as she stands with demonstrators that gathered in front of the White House in Washington, DC on September 13, 2016, to protest the Dakota Access Pipeline. The US government on September 9, 2016 sought to stop work on a controversial oil pipeline in North Dakota that has angered Native Americans, blocking any work on federal land and asking the company to "voluntarily pause" work nearby.
