LINCOLN, Nebraska (AP) - Opponents of the Keystone XL pipeline will march in Lincoln and form a "human wall" around the Nebraska Capitol.
The rally is set to begin at 11:30 a.m. Saturday in Cooper Park.
The gathering includes farmers, ranchers, environmental groups, American Indian activists and members of the Occupy Lincoln movement.
Organizers say the human wall is an effort to persuade President Barack Obama to reject a permit application that would allow Calgary-based TransCanada to build the Keystone XL oil pipeline.
Lead organizer Tom Weis is traveling along the pipeline's proposed route in a "rocket trike," a recumbent tricycle with a protective covering.
