Thousands circled the White House on Sunday, sending a clear mesage to President Obama to halt the Keystone XL Pipeline. Oglala Lakota Vice President Tom Poor Bear, Lakota activist Debra White Plume, Cree actress Tantoo Cardinal and Clayton Thomas Muller of the Indigenous Environmental Network were among the Native Americans and First Nation activists at the rally and action. Actor Mark Ruffalo and activist Naomi Klein joined with Indigenous Peoples in support.

Also in the news today, Navajos on Black Mesa say 'NO!' to Peabody Coal Mine's renewal of a coal mining permit on Black Mesa. Despite decades of fighting the beast that rips out the liver of Mother Earth on Black Mesa, and the decades of tragedy caused by the relocation of Navajos orchestrated by Peabody, coal mining and coal-fired power plants continue on the Navajo Nation, with leases from the Navajo Nation government.
