On April 26th the Cowboy Indian Alliance of farmers, ranchers and tribal leaders have invited our movement to join them at their tipi encampment on the National Mall for their closing argument against Keystone XL. Our friends in Minnesota, 350MN, have organized a bus to travel out to Washington DC and they’ve invited us to join them!
The goal of this action is to show President Obama that we still expect him to reject the pipeline — but that we’re also ready and willing to stand with farmers, ranchers and tribal communities to protect our land water and climate if he approves it.
It will then make a stop in Chicago and continue through the night to DC.
The bus will arrive in DC at 8am Saturday morning, and will depart from the National Mall at 9pm on Saturday night.
The cost of the bus is $200
On the 26th, the Alliance will be giving President Obama a hand-painted tipi — a symbol of the hope that he will live up to his words and reject the pipeline, and a clear statement that he can expect resistance should he approve it.
