After months of protests and civil outrage, the Army Corps of Engineers announced Sunday (December 4) that the Dakota Access Pipeline will not be allowed to cross the Standing Rock Sioux reservation and instead will be re-routed, CNN reports.

In the wake of the encouraging news, stars like Katy Perry, Rose McGowan, Pharrell, Lana Del Rey, Shirley Manson of Garbage and more shared messages of hope, gratitude, relief and excitement on Instagram and Twitter.

“Proof that your voice actually matters,” Perry tweeted, a sentiment that was echoed by Pharrell, who said, “Solid proof that people coming together can change things for the better.”

Meanwhile, actor Mark Ruffalo shared an emotional, jubilant video on Instagram, while actress Sophia Bush celebrated with a tweet touting the power “peaceful resistance.”

The decision comes just days after a collection of over 100 musicians signed indie pop artist Kate Nash’s open letter to President Obama.

Dakota Access Pipeline Denied by Army Corps of Engineers! No win is ever permanent but we can rejoice today because together we created greater justice in the world, we opened the door to heal the old wounds sustained by our indigenous people. President Obama will leave the White House as a great chief of America for this. We must all thank the Native Youth who started this movement who started the camp and ran all over the USA to stop this from happening. It is for them, the unborn and the voiceless that we persist in the struggle. We must also have compassion for the Police who were on the other side of this struggle but are still our brothers and sisters. #BlackEagle #standingrocksioux #peacefulwarrior #NoDAPL #Legacy
