Keystone XL opponents to march in Nebraska
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska opponents of the Keystone XL pipeline will participate in a walk across the nation to draw attention to climate change.
Dozens of Nebraskans are expected to join the Great March for Climate Action on Saturday for a portion of the 3,000-mile walk from Los Angeles to Washington. The group's destination for the day is the renewable energy barn built by Bold Nebraska on the pipeline's proposed route.
Speakers will include Democratic U.S. Senate hopeful Dave Domina, Bold Nebraska director Jane Kleeb and Julia Trigg Crawford, a Texas landowner who fought an eminent domain claim for the pipeline on her land.
The 10-mile walk will start at 9 a.m. at St. John's Church in Marquette. A separate mile-long walk will start at 1 p.m. near the barn northwest of York.
