The "unlawfull assembly" law? Is that the one found in the 1st Amendment of the US Constitution, the one that very clearly says that Congress shall make no law abridging the right of the people peaceably to assemble?

Trespassers? Really? Native people are trespassing on the continent stolen from them with broken treaties, murder and disease? Does the water then trespass on the land, and do the birds trespass in the air? You're going to need to explain that.

Did you miss the word "peaceable"? Very important word.

Yes, they are tresspassing. It is private land that they are on and have been asked to leave. They did not leave so they are trespassing.

Ah yes, property rights, the last refuge of scoundrels in power throughout human history...the minutemen were "trespassing" on the King's common at Lexington and Concord, the Bonus Marchers were "trespassing" until the US Cavalry came to kill them, the people were "trespassing" in Tiananmen Square until the peaceful tanks ran them over, the Yippies were "trespassing" in Grant Park until the Chicago police rioted upon them, and the more recent Occupy people, trespassers one and all. President Lincoln told us that the government, with its institutions, belongs to the people, and when they grow weary of it, they can exercise their constitutional right to amend it, or their revolutionary right to overthrow it...but then they'd be "trespassing", wouldn't they? Trespassing, being a misdemeanor, of course requires a response involving armed provocatuers, armored vehicles, chemical agents and assault weapons...unless the trespassers are Mormon nutbags with guns and old glory, it seems.

Trespassing is just one of the issues. They are also unlawfully assembling and setting equipment on fire. That is vandalism and the police must protect the owners of that property from the people doing the crimes.

FactCheck: These people are breaking the "Unlawful Assembly" law. What TYT doesn't state is these activists have set equipment on fire. That is no longer a peaceful assembly. They are trespassers on private land. The pipeline is developed northwest of the reservation so it is NOT on tribal land.
