Obama Delays Keystone XL Decision; Cowboys & Indians Rally

The Cowboy and Indian Alliance Opposes the Keystone XL Pipeline

The Cowboy and Indian Alliance Opposes the keystone XL Pipeline

The Cowboy and Indian Alliance has five days of actions now underway in Washington, DC, culminating on April 26, 2014, to urge President Obama to reject the Keystone XL pipeline and to educate the public on the pipeline’s dangers. The Cowboy and Indian Alliance is a coalition of tribal communities, ranchers and farmers living along the proposed route for the KXL pipeline. Their goal is to “Reject & Defend” – that is — to reject this dirty and dangerous fossil fuel project and to defend the earth’s resources (land, water, and climate) for future generations. On April 26th, thousands will gather on the National Mall for a tipi ceremony and procession. A tipi will be decorated with the Indian names bestowed on President Obama by Montana’s Crow Nation and the Lakota tribe and with symbols for protection of land and water.

In a move embraced by those opposed to the pipeline, just as activists were preparing for this week of actions, the Obama administration decided to extend the review period on the Keystone XL pipeline. It now seems likely that a final decision on whether or not the KXL will be constructed will be made after the November 4 Congressional elections. On April 18, the Administration announced that more time was needed for federal agencies to review the 2.5 million public comments made on the KXL and also to see the outcome of a lawsuit in Nebraska concerning the pipeline’s route. In February, a Nebraskan district court overturned a law that permitted the pipeline and there is no set date for Nebraska’s Supreme Court to address the issue.

The pipeline has been in review by the State Department since 2008. There is more than sufficient evidence to conclude that this pipeline, for the export of tar sands oil, is not in the interest of the American people, nor in the interest of our planet. For those who can come to Washington, DC this Saturday, help us send the “reject and defend” message to the White House. Sign up today here.

    Many thanks for posting this – the more exposure, the better. This, apparently is the only way it gets done;
    No matter how much we should be able to assume the right things would be done, based on the facts, well, we can’t.

    Yes — we need to do all we can to make visible the broad opposition to the Keystone XL pipeline and similar projects. Our national focus needs to be on cutting greenhouse emissions and investing in renewable energy and energy efficiency. The urgency is greater by the day.

    In Alabama, police seized the home of a senior citizen because her yard was used, without her consent, for
    drug dealing. Forde and Gaxiola will be tried together in January of 2011, if all goes according to

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My website has a lot of unique content I’ve either created myself or
    outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all
    over the internet without my permission. Do you know
    any techniques to help stop content from being stolen? I’d certainly appreciate it.
