We met on the capitol steps under the President Lincoln statue to remind State Senators, on the opening day of our State Legislature, that it is their duty to protect our land and water. Bold did a great job planning this! There was a big crowd, media coverage and a lot of enthusiasm from those present.

Week of Action

Guardians sponsored a decentralized WEEK OF ACTION to stop the Keystone XL pipeline, in Nebraska and beyond, the week of: AUGUST  18-25

Here is an example:

On August 18th, at 4:30pm, a member of GOTGL staged a “human oil spill” in Memorial Park (at 60th and Dodge). People dressed in all black or black trash bags and rolled down the hill in Memorial to simulate an oil spill. People who could not or did not want to roll down the hill held signs protesting the pipeline.

Shesent out press releases to various media outlets, created a facebook event, made fliers and arranged to have the event recorded to be put on youtube.

See pictures from this event!
