Scores of military veterans have begun arriving to take part in the North Dakota pipeline protest, with hundreds, possibly thousands more expected, including a US congresswoman. 
Members of the group Veterans for Standing Rock, organized on Facebook, have come to support Native American and environmental protesters against the Dakota Access Pipeline. Over 2,000 veterans have pledged their support, with the step coming as law enforcement authorities increase their efforts to crack down on the protest. Hundreds have been arriving at a protest camp on Friday, according to Reuters.
“The militarized police paid for by tax dollars ... is unconstitutional,”Ashleigh Jennifer Parker, a former member of the Coast Guard, told USA Today.
“People are being brutalized; concussion grenades are being thrown into crowds. They're spraying people, even old women, and other elders of the tribe with tear gas and pepper spray, and all of this is just unconstitutional. I can't believe the media hasn't taken more of an interest in this.”
Mark Sanderson, a former special forces soldier from Texas, told CBC News: “I bled in Iraq and you're going to threaten to shoot me on a bridge in North Dakota?”
A number of veterans have already arrived at the protest camp, including Purple Heart recipient Chris Turley.
Others charted their progress on social media.
Just a Wake Up and I'm on my way to  . This isn't about the Veterans it is about the People there.
