Description

Join the bus from South Dakota to Lincoln, Nebraska to rally against the Keystone XL pipeline and March to Give KXL the Boot on Sunday, August 6th!

Nebraska's Public Service Commission has the ability to stop the Keystone XL pipeline and ahead of their vote this fall, and we need to show them that Coloradans stand with Nebraska against this dirty and dangerous project. We need you there with us to send the message that Keystone XL is a threat to our land, water, and climate, and is not in the public interest. It's time to stop this dirty pipeline once and for all!

Here are the details:

WHAT: March to Give Keystone XL the Boot! (preceded by a TBD regional skillshare event)
WHEN: Sunday, August 6th, 2017, 3:00-5:30PM
WHERE: Nebraska State Capitol
QUESTIONS? Contact Remi at remi.baldeagle@crst-nsn.gov or Anna at anna.mcdevitt@sierraclub.org

Bus travel Q&As:

What do I need to bring?

Please bring comfortable clothes & shoes that you can plan to wear for the bus travel, indoor skillshare event and afternoon March and rally outside.

What about food?

Lunch will be provided at the Mid-West Pipeline Summit. Please register for the Summit and your free lunch here! Subway sandwiches will be provided for dinner on the way home from Lincoln on Sunday night. We recommend that you bring your own snacks or meals for any part of the trip (and extra to share if you like!) and/or money to purchase food while in Lincoln. We will not be able to provide breakfast on Sunday morning upon arriving in Lincoln.

Are there bathrooms on the bus?

There is a bathroom on the bus.

What about outlets / wifi on the bus?

There may be a limited amount of power outlets and a wifi network onboard the bus, but we can't guarantee these amenities since they are dependent on availability at our charter company. Please bring your own portable power pack and cell phone or hotspot if this is important to you.

Is the bus comfortable?

The buses we charter are fairly standard motorcoaches with a capacity of at least 54 passengers. These are NOT school buses. There is space for luggage underneath and small luggage racks onboard above the seats. The seats recline slightly and have reading lights. Feel free to bring a blanket or pillow to make it easier to take a nap.

Is there parking at the departure location?

Yes. The bus is departing from the Cheyenne River Cultural center in Eagle Butte and the Tribal Office parking lot on the Rosebud reservation.

Who is organizing this trip?

This bus is organized by partners in the March to Give KXL the Boot. Please contact Remi at remi.baldeagle@crst-nsn.gov with questions about the Cheyenne River stop and Paula at paula.antoine@rosebudsiouxtribe-nsn.gov with questions about the Rosebud stop.

Should I book today or wait until closer to the trip date?

Book as soon as possible, today if you can. Once this bus fills up, we close off ticket purchases and even though we'd love to have you travel with us, we have to say no if we don't have the room. If you want to come to Nebraska from South Dakota for the March to Give KXL the Boot, please book as soon as you can to guarantee a seat!
