Several groups opposing the Keystone Pipeline Project including BOLD Nebraska, and the Cowboy and Indian Alliance are camped out in Washington DC sending their message to the State Department, the President and Congress.  Rosebud Sioux tribal member Gary Dorr, organizer for tribal resistance to the proposed pipeline route is at the encampment. He says most of the concerns center around possible environmental damage from the pipeline if it’s approved.

Dorr says if Keystone gets final approval from the President and the State Department the tribes will do everything they can in a peaceful manner to keep the project from going through the reservation.

Encampment participants on Saturday and others totaling 5,000 will join in a procession to the Capitol voicing opposition to the Keystone Pipeline. The week long event will end Sunday with an Interfaith ceremony.
