Chadron State College alum one of many D.C. pipeline protesters

Groups of farmers, ranchers and Native Americans went to the nations capitol  for Earth Day to protest the building of the Keystone Pipeline.
 
One of the groups that protested is called the "Cowboy Indian Alliance" (C.I.A.) Protesters say the pipeline will harm the environment, including the valuable Ogallala Aquifer.

Chadron State College alumni Bob Allpress traveled from Naper, Nebraska to participate.

"I represent the farmers and ranchers and landowners of Nebraska who are standing in direct opposition of the Keystone Pipeline," says Allpress. "We have no route through Nebraska as we won our battle in the courts. We will continue to fight and join with our native allies as a CIA member and stay CIA strong."
 
Supporters of the pipeline say it will bring jobs and allow the U.S. more energy independence.
