Speaking of protest and the President, Indians, cowboys, and other folks who prefer water to oil are coming to Watertown to protest the Keystone XL pipeline. Starting at noon Friday, pipeline opponents will gather in Belmont Park, right across from the Watertown Civic Arena, to prepare to welcome the President with their call to stop TransCanada from taking South Dakotans’ land for their private profit.
Dallas Goldtooth has an enthusiastic video invite to the rally on Facebook. The protesters’ Facebook page also shows youth of the Sisseton Wahpeton Tribe preparing posters for the rally.
South Dakotans young and old should come out to Belmont Park tomorrow to wave to the President and make clear that we want him to protect South Dakota from the Keystone XL pipeline.
