Oklahomans Rally on KXL Easement Through Indigenous Lands to Say: “No Tar Sands on Stolen Lands!”

Today, Oklahomans from across the state, indigenous activists, and environmental activists came together and walked onto an easement where pipe for the Keystone XL tar-sands pipeline was being laid through Sac & Fox land in Stroud, Oklahoma in solidarity with Idle No More and the Unis’tot’en Camp, and communities impacted by dangerous and extreme extraction efforts around the world.

The group marched along segments of buried and unburied pipe, participating in round-dances near the work sites. The demonstration was intended as a small act of civil disobedience to inaugurate a sustained campaign of direct action being launched by a diverse coalition intent on stopping the construction of the toxic Keystone XL pipeline in Oklahoma.
