South Dakota Public Utilities Commission will be holding the FINAL hearings to decided whether or not to let TransCanada put our lands and waters at risk by building Keystone XL. Be it on horseback, bike, or on foot we invite all Pipeline Fighters from across the state, region, and country to unite and ride into Pierre - crossing the sacred Missouri River to say NO to Keystone XL.
We'll be meeting in Fort Pierre next to the Pizza Ranch at 11am MDT (12pm CT). Riders both native and non-native will be leading us and we will ride and march together across the bridge into Pierre to show our collective resistance to tar sands and the Keystone XL pipeline. The march will be followed by a water ceremony, concert rally, and a community feed.
