Anti-Dakota Access Pipeline protesters unfurled a giant banner from the rafters in US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on January 1, urging US Bank to divest from the pipeline.

News <a href="http://time.com/4620074/vikings-game-dakota-pipeline-protest/?xid=time_socialflow_twitter" target="_blank">reports</a> said that US Bank was likely targeted because of the line of credit they issued to Energy Transfer Partners, one of the parent companies involved in the construction of the pipeline.

Two protesters are seen in these videos using rappelling gear in the rafters above the field during the first half of an <span class="caps">NFL</span> game between the Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears. Media <a href="http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/2017/1/1/14139882/protesters-climb-vikings-stadium-divest-nodapl" target="_blank">reports</a> and fans at the game said the seats immediately below the protesters were cleared in case they should fall.
