Nebraska farmer

This couple drove 160 miles to meet with us and tell us about the duplicitous practice of TransCanada who are trying to build the KXL Pipeline through their farm. Never before activists, these folks have joined with their neighbors to fight the takeover of their family farms by a foreign corp by eminent domain. They have been threatened with lawsuits if they don't sign the agreements. They are passionate and articulate fighters, and say they will help Iowans fight the new proposed pipeline across Iowa. Organize now, everybody, so people don't get sucked in by the lies or intimidated by the threats. We will be in Bradshaw,NE in a week to help bring more attention to the fight here. It will be a "homecoming" for me, as I helped build the 'energy barn' on the path of the pipeline last fall. This gentleman told us how very important it is that we are doing what we are doing.
