Indigenous Environmental Network Response to Presidential Veto of Keystone XL Bill

In response to President Obama’s veto of the Congressional Bill to overstep the federal review of the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, Tom Goldtooth, Executive Director of the Indigenous Environmental Network released the following statement:

“Vetoing KXL, Obama is showing that he’s listened to the Oceti Sakowin – Seven Council Fires of the Dakota, Nakota, Lakota Nations and all people resisting the pipeline. But the fight is not over. We need an outright REJECTION of the KXL permit. That would be the final nail in the coffin for Keystone XL. We stand united with Indigenous peoples across Turtle Island who are fighting against tar sands development and infrastructure, from northern Alberta to the Great Plains to the Gulf. We will see this fight through to the end”
