Nebraska: Declare Independence from Tar Sands!
Keystone XL's proposed route runs through hundreds of Nebraska homes, farms and ranches, crossing the delicate Sandhills and putting the critical Ogallala Aquifer at risk. This summer, the people of Nebraska will stand up for their future by literally building the clean energy future we need. We will challenge big oil to show their true stripes by constructing a windmill and a barn with solar panels immediately in the path of the proposed pipeline and using creative tactics to resist pipeline construction before it begins. If President Obama approves Keystone XL, he'll then have to tear down clean and locally-produced energy to make way for dirty and foreign tarsands. This is the summer of the Pipeline Fighter declaring our independence from dangerous tarsands.
