Excerpts from RejectAndProtect.org BoldNebraska.org:
Reject and Protect is led by the “Cowboy and Indian Alliance,” a group of ranchers, farmers, and tribal communities from Nebraska and elsewhere along the Keystone XL pipeline route, and supported by Bold Nebraska and the organizations below. Together, we will send a clear message to President Obama: “Reject Keystone XL.”
The Cowboy and Indian Alliance brings together tribal communities with ranchers and farmers living along the Keystone XL pipeline proposed route. Farmers and ranchers know the risk first-hand. They work the land every day. Tribes know the risk first-hand. They protect the sacred water every day. They have united out of love and respect for the land and water on which we all depend.
This is not the first time an Alliance such as this has come together to stop projects that risk our land and water. In the 80s, we came together to protect water and the Black Hills from uranium mining and risky munitions testing. In the American imagination, “cowboys and Indians” are still at odds. However, in reality, opposition to the Keystone XL tarsands pipeline has brought communities together like few causes in our history. Tribes, farmers and ranchers are all people of the land, who consider it their duty as stewards to conserve the land and protect the water for future generations.
On April 22, 2014 an alliance of pipeline fighters — ranchers, farmers, tribal communities, and their friends — called the Cowboy and Indian Alliance rode into Washington DC and set up camp on the National Mall.
For 5 days, they held ceremonies and demonstration to remind him of the threat this tar sands pipeline poses to our climate, land, water and tribal rights.
The Alliance has invited friends and allies against the pipeline to join their camp and march together to make an unmistakable message to Pres. Obama.
