CLIMATE RALLY - WASHINGTON, DC
In February, Guide to Nebraska Alex Matzke traveled to Washington, DC, with a group of Nebraskans protesting against the Keystone XL pipeline.  Here are Alex’s words:
I was completely overwhelmed by the number of people. Does that sound like a terribly midwestern thing to say? But it’s true. I’ve been in Times Square during high traffic, but never in a mob moving together. At times dancing with total strangers because Reverend Yearwood asked you to jump away the cold between speakers. 
Most of the Nebraska delegation bussed out arriving the night before the rally. We met in the basement of a local pub for stretching of legs and instructions from organizers at Bold Nebraska. That night we also had an opportunity to hear from speakers who would only be a blip on giant screen at the rally. Congregating in the morning our numbers were quickly diluted as the crowd moved around the White House.
