Native American Great Plains Tribes Protest Keystone Pipeline
Washington, DC April 22, 2014 - Native American Plains Tribes protesting the Keystone Oil Pipeline - message to President Obama - "Protect our sacred lands."
Washington DC - April 24, 2014 "Native Americans from across the United States are holding a peaceful protest on the National Mall this week, brought here by a pipeline debate in the Midwest...
Here in Washington the debate over the Keystone XL pipeline--which would deliver tar sand oil from Canada to the Gulf coast--has centered on whether it will create jobs or increase global warming. But the tribes that would be impacted say the debate should be about what it would mean for their sacred lands. That's why Cyril Scott, president of Rosebud Sioux Tribe of South Dakota, is joining dozens of other native leaders on the mall this week." http://wamu.org/news/14/04/24/on_national_mall_native_americans_protest_keystone_xl_pipeline
Rosebud Sioux President Cyrill Scott - “I am very concerned these transient workers are going to come onto our land and violate our people...some of the man camps would have as many as 600 men." http://cnsnews.com/news/article/penny-starr/keystone-pipeline-protesters-man-camps-could-lead-sexual-assaults-native
