More than 400 Nebraskans and South Dakotans turned out on Saturday, May 17 to three local events that were part of a National Day of Action to say NO to Keystone XL and dirty fossil fuels, and to call for a transition to clean, renewable energy.

At “Hands Across the Bridge” in Omaha, an amazing crowd of 230 Pipeline Fighters joined hands in unity on the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge that spans the Missouri River — which the Keystone XL pipeline would cross.
The Omaha World-Herald was there and filed this story about the event.
Watch the KMTV news story below:
At the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Spirit Camp near Ideal, South Dakota, set up in March to protest Keystone XL, the Cowboy and Indian Alliance led “Hands Around the Camp,” where participants all joined hands in a traditional round dance.
In Bradshaw, Nebraska, folks gathered at the Build Our Energy Barn — the wind- and solar-powered barn built by volunteers on land directly in the path of the Keystone XL pipeline — to send the message that we intend to protect our investment in clean, renewable energy from a risky tarsands pipeline.
Thank you to everyone who came out to participate in the May 17 National #NoKXL Day of Action!
