Protestors unfurl banner with message for U.S. Bank at Vikings game

In Minneapolis on Sunday protesters unfurled a banner protesting the Dakota Access oil pipeline, high above the field during an National Football League game between the Minnesota Vikings and the Chicago Bears.

Protesters against the Dakota Access Pipeline repel from the catwalk in U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. Initially, no one could tell what it was or why anyone would want to hang from a banner at the top of a giant stadium during a game, but the motives soon became apparent.

Seven rows of fans were cleared out directly below them, while police and fire officials were rushed upstairs.

"Two individuals appeared to have climbed over a guard rail to access the ridge truss. We will continue to update media on the situation".

Here's one last look at the protester who's wearing a Favre jersey.

That's because two fans, somehow, made their way to the rafters of US Bank Stadium and managed to hang from a banner.

"This pipeline is unsafe for any community it passes through".

The activists dropped a banner that read "Divest #NoDAPL" with the U.S. Bank logo above, furthering activism against the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota and its investors.

This is the second time in 14 months that protesters have using rappelling equipment to make a statement at an National Football League game.
