Randy Thompson is a landowner from Merrick County:
I want to thank all of my fellow Nebraskans who are in DC protesting the pipeline, and I want all of you to know that I respect and admire the courage and personal commitment you have shown by being there.
It is time that the American people send a message to the big oil companies and their political allies, and that message is this: We are fed up with having our livelihoods and natural resources put at risk just for the sake of corporate profit, and we are also fed up with a politicians who fail to hear to our voices, but instead cater to those who can fatten their campaign coffers.
There are many unanswered questions about this project but one thing is becoming abundantly clear, Americans do not support or want this pipeline.
Please make sure they get the message.
