  Protesters against the Dakota Access pipeline are gearing up for a confrontation with authorities over a patch of private land on the pipeline route.
 
   Protesters constructed two barricades Thursday on a highway near the camp they have established on property owned by the pipeline’s developer. They barricades are made of tires, hay bales, logs, plywood and barbed wire.
 
   Protesters also are moving from their main camp, which is on federally owned land, to the camp on the private property. Riders on horseback are monitoring the movements of authorities.
 
   On Wednesday, authorities gathered in the area with heavy equipment including Humvees and buses and demanded the protesters leave the private land. The protesters refused.
 
   Protester Robert Eder says if authorities clear out the camp, “there will be twice as many tomorrow.”
