Democracy Now! Mass Protest to Cap Week of Action Against Keystone XL Pipeline

Native Americans and ranchers are continuing their weeklong protest against the Keystone XL oil pipeline in Washington, D.C. On Thursday, the Cowboy and Indian Alliance rolled out a fake pipeline in front of the Lincoln Memorial and called for leaders to reject the project.
Wizipan Little Elk, member of Rosebud Sioux tribe: "So our message to the Canadian government is let’s do what’s right for North America. Let’s not capitulate to multinational corporations and their greed."
Art Tanderup, Nebraska landowner: "We do not want to pollute our water and destroy our land. We want to see our children and our grandchildren survive on the plains as our forefathers have done for many generations. We need President Obama to reject the Keystone XL pipeline."
Thousands of protesters are expected to join a march on D.C. on Saturday. The Obama administration has delayed a decision on the pipeline for a third straight year.

This is an awesome report and gives new meaning to the word "alliance". Keep spreading the word...if "cowboys" and "Indians" can come together, we all can for the protection of our land, water, wildlife and people...this is where we draw the line!
