For nine years, Pipeline Fighters and Water Protectors have been fighting the Keystone XL pipeline, which is abusing eminent domain for private gain, trampling sovereign rights, and threatening our land, water and climate. The final regulatory hurdle for KXL is at the Nebraska Public Service Commission (PSC), which is planning a week-long public hearing August 7-11 in Lincoln, Nebraska. Nebraska is the last stand, and the PSC will be voting on whether to accept or reject TransCanada’s permit application. On the eve of the hearing, BOLD Nebraska calls on all Pipeline Fighters to join them in Lincoln for the March to Give Keystone XL the Boot, on Sunday, 6 August 2017, 3:00pm-5:30pm. The march will proceed from the Cornhusker Marriott Hotel to Nebraska State Capitol (1445 K St, Lincoln, NE 68508: map)
Hundreds of Nebraskans from throughout the state will join in, including the nearly 100 brave landowners who for nine years have resisted TransCanada’s bullying and eminent domain, and refused to sell their land for the pipeline. Marching alongside them will be our Native brothers and sisters who have also been fighting KXL since the beginning. March sponsors of Bold Nebraska, the Sierra Club, and 350.org are organizing buses from a variety of cities to travel to Lincoln for the March. More details coming soon, including the exact march route, bus departure cities and times, and other events occurring around the March and the week of public hearings before the Public Service Commission.
