The Reject and Protect encampment descended upon Washington, D.C. for a week of non-violent action against the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline. The movement is led by the “Cowboy Indian Alliance,” a large group of farmers, ranchers, and Native American communities hailing from sites through which proposed pipeline will pass. Organizations such as Greenpeace, 350.org and The Sierra Club are supporting our friends living on Keystone XL’s route who want no part in a pipeline.
The movement led a non-violent action at the Lincoln Memorial on April 24th, including a series of displays, signage, and speakers that including members of the Ponca Nation. The action took place in front of Lincoln Memorial visitors and members of the national media.
