Nebraska’s Public Service Commission has the ability to stop the Keystone XL pipeline ahead of their vote this fall, and we need to show them that we stand with Nebraska against this dirty and dangerous project.
We’re marching in solidarity with hundreds of Nebraskans, along with Water Protectors and dirty fuels Pipeline Fighters from near and far, ahead of a weeklong set of Keystone XL intervenor hearings at the Nebraska Public Service Commission. We need you there with us to send the message that Keystone XL is a threat to our land, water, and climate, and is not in the public interest.
The bus will start in Milwaukee in the late evening on Saturday, August 5, and make stops along the way to arrive Sunday morning in time for the Pipeline Fighters Summit – a regional skillshare with coalition partners across the Midwest to foster conversation and collaboration that will strengthen our local campaign work. Register for the Pipeline Fighters Summit at http://tinyurl.com/y8lm8gpr!
For Wisconsin folks, this will be an overnight trip leaving late Saturday evening and getting back early Monday morning, so we’ll be sleeping on the bus both ways. Lunch on Sunday will be provided. The Sierra Club is subsidizing the bus cost, so tickets will cost only $15, plus the Eventbrite processing fee. Nobody will be turned away for lack of funds – just let us know if you can only afford a free or half-price ticket. And if you can’t go, consider making a contribution to help others go!
We need to fill the bus with as many passionate marchers as possible to help send our message loud and clear that we won’t stand for dirty fossil fuel projects like Keystone XL!
