Groups to protest pipeline route approval

Groups to protest pipeline route approval

Bold Nebraska will team up with a grassroots Native social justice movement at 4 p.m. Monday to host a rally on the west steps of the State Capitol.

The two groups plan to protest Gov. Dave Heineman’s recent decision to approve a route for the Keystone XL pipeline through Nebraska. They’ll also hold a round dance, pound Native drums and light wish lanterns to raise awareness about what they describe as attacks on indigenous sovereignty and lands in the United States and in Canada, where the Idle No More movement began.

Idle No More began as a response to proposed legislation in Canada that would drastically reduce the number of legally protected waterways and lower the threshold of consent needed to allow Native communities to surrender their lands.
