Reject and Protect

In Late April, an alliance of pipeline fighters — ranchers, farmers, tribal communities, and their friends — called the Cowboy Indian Alliance will ride into Washington DC for the next, and perhaps final, chapter in the fight against Keystone XL. On April 26th, everyone is invited to join the Alliance to send an last message to President Obama. Our community of pipeline fighters just sent 2 million comments against the pipeline in just 30 days. We must follow this up with action in the streets on April 26th as we march with tribal leaders and individuals currently living with the risk tarsands to show all the beauty and power we represent. Everyone is needed and everyone is welcome.
