Ronda Rousey Arrives At Standing Rock To Protest Donald Trump’s Dakota Pipeline Order
President Donald Trump wants to continue the planned building of the $3.8 billion Dakota Access oil pipeline, which crosses the Missouri River just above the Standing Rock reservation and has been protested for months.
MMA star Ronda Rousey was not going to stand by and not give support, so she went out to protest with the people to stop this planned building.

“Ronda Rousey got political last week — with a secret run to the Standing Rock Indian Reservation to help protesters fighting against the Dakota Access Pipeline project.
The UFC star teamed up with fellow Olympic judo athlete Pauline Macias and went to the protest site in North Dakota to deliver supplies.
We’re told Ronda’s group brought fresh fruit, veggies, bread, tents and wood-burning stoves. One source says Ronda didn’t want recognition and tried to stay under the radar.
By the way, Ronda was SMILING again — which is great because we haven’t seen a lot of that lately.”
Rousey puts her name on a growing list of celebrities who have come out to Standing Rock to give their support.
