It’s been a little over a year since we launched the Promise to Protect. Together, we stopped Keystone XL for yet another year, but despite our victories in court, we must be ready to mobilize.
As with Dakota Access, we know fossil fuel companies like TransCanada will stop at nothing to try and finish their black snake, their climate destroyer.
This video takes you to the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation in South Dakota where I live, which is less than half a mile from the pipeline’s proposed route. Communities here have been fighting Keystone XL for a decade, and we need your support now more than ever.
In the video you meet some of our elders, youth, horseback riders, mothers, aunties and uncles who have made the commitment, the promise to protect our homelands, families, not just ours, but yours too.
In early November, a federal judge ruled that Trump’s permit for the pipeline was “invalid” and ordered a new environmental review.1
While TransCanada has been banned from pre-construction activities, we’re hearing that the Trump Administration is speeding up it’s review. At the same time, lawmakers are urging Trump to to take ‘any appropriate action’ to ensure Keystone XL gets built.2
In January, we’ll be sharing an exciting plan to help do just that. In the meantime, please keep us in your thoughts and prayers and talk to your families and friends about this struggle.
