First Nations Forced to Protest Keystone XL Announcement From A Cage

Aboriginals joining forces to protest President Obama's Executive Order calling for the approval of the southern leg of the Keystone XL pipeline were forced by local authorities to conduct their protest from a cage in a nearby park.

The protestors were stunned by their treatment and their inability to be given their right to freedom of speech. Spokespeople at the event said the major concern for the protestors is the impact of Keystone XL and the Canadian tar sands on indigenous communities and their sacred spaces.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.


You are free to assemble, and speak your mind, and complain all you like about how our actions may harm you. (But you’ll have to do it over there, where we can’t see or hear you.)
