#NoDAPL marches and other protests set for DC, LA and NYC this weekend
On Friday, activists across the country will begin protesting and rallying in Washington, D.C., to "demand that indigenous rights be respected" over the construction of the Dakota Access pipeline on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation.
Other activists will also be marching and rallying for and against other causes in Washington, D.C., Los Angeles and New York City.
Here's what is happening this weekend:

"Alt-right" Neo Nazi Richard Spencer recently opened an office of his white supremacist think tank the National Policy Institute in Alexandria, Virginia. We will rally together to show these nazis that they are NOT welcome in our community, that their perverted, violent racist ideology has no place in our society and that they should prepare to meet coordinated, powerful peaceful resistance should they try to operate in Washington, D.C.
Join us on Saturday, March 11, as we march and celebrate with local artists, musicians and community members to celebrate our diverse neighborhoods. Featuring musical acts Elena y Los Fulanos, Lilo, Ethiopian Dance and many more!
