What was the KXL Resistance March?
On July 26th, marchers from the four directions of South Dakota converged upon the state’s capitol, Pierre, to demonstrate their continued resistance to the Keystone XL Pipeline. Over 400 riders, marchers, and Pipeline Fighters crossed the Missouri River to protest the pipeline.
On July 27th thru Aug 4th, the SD Public Utilities Commission is holding a final hearing to decide the fate of TranCanada’s KXL state permit! If you haven’t written in to the PUC, click here now!
