Des Moines, IA. – Two women with ties to the leftist terrorist group AntiFa have admitted to repeatedly damaging the Dakota Access Pipeline during it’s construction and have been arrested for their crimes as of today by Iowa State Troopers.
According to the Des Moines Register, a local newspaper
“Jessica Reznicek, 35, and Ruby Montoya, 27, both of Des Moines, held a news conference Monday outside the Iowa Utilities Board’s offices where they provided a detailed description of their deliberate efforts to stop the pipeline’s completion. They were taken into custody by state troopers immediately afterward when they abruptly began using a crowbar and a hammer to damage a sign on state property.”
The women claim that they had been spending considerable amounts of time researching the best methods of destruction. They studies which tools and processes would allow them to damage the outer steel casing of the pipeline and disrupt the construction process most effectively.
The two eventually turned to arson and utilized gasoline and tires to destroy electrical sites, valve placements, and work zones along the whole rout of the pipeline in Iowa.
This past Monday the both of them were transported to Pole County jail and are being held on $1,000 bonds.
Some are calling for the women to be charged with terrorism as their violent goals had political motivations, which fits the definition.
