On April 22, a group of ranchers, farmers and tribal communities from along the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline route, called the Cowboy Indian Alliance, will ride into Washington, DC and set up camp near the White House to tell President Obama to reject the pipeline.
On April 26, thousands of people will join them to stand together for a final message that the Keystone XL pipeline and the tar sands must be rejected -- to protect this, and future generations.
