"Reject and Protect" actions against Keystone XL pipeline in U.S. Favorite 


Apr 22 2014


Washington DC

The Cowboy and Indian Alliance, a coalition of indigenous tribes, ranchers, farmers, stages a protest named "Reject and Protect" against the Keystone XL oil pipeline project along the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline route, as a part of series of demonstrations around the Capitol Hill in Washington D.C., capital of the United States, April 22, 2014, on the occasion of the World Earth Day.

Protesters said activists also plan to project anti-pipeline messages onto the Environmental Protection Agency on Thursday night, hold an interfaith ceremony outside the Georgetown home of Secretary of State John Kerry and stage an unspecified “bold and creative” bit of civil disobedience.

The protest comes amid some good news for pipeline critics: the State Department’s announcement last week that it will postpone a final decision on the project until after Nebraska’s Supreme Court settles a legal skirmish about the pipeline’s route inside the state.
