Singer Neil Young is calling on President Obama "to step in and end" what he calls the "violence" against protesters demonstrating against the Dakota Access Pipeline.
In an open letter on Facebook posted Monday, Young calls the protest at the Standing Rock Indian Reservation "an awakening," and says demonstrators are "standing strong in the face of outrageous, unnecessary and violent aggression."
Young adds law enforcement agencies and the National Guard are "seemingly acting to protect the interests of the Dakota Access Pipeline profiteers" with taxpayer money.
He also chided President-elect Donald Trump, labeling him the "surprise president."
