Pipeline Protests

Bold Nebraska’s Jane Kleeb refutes TransCanada’s insistence that it hasn’t labeled Keystone XL protestors terrorists.
Kleeb says only one conclusion can be reached in wake of TransCanada’s recent meetings with law enforcement in Nebraska. . .

Kleeb distanced herself from the more extreme protests used by the so-called Tar Sands Blockade along the southern route of the pipeline. . .

Kleeb holds out hope that President Obama will reject TransCanada’s application for a permit to build the northern route of Keystone XL. But, if the president does, she says Bold Nebraska will continue to protest the pipeline, non-violently.
