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.

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.
