A Keystone XL rally brings out crowds—in support of the pipeline. They’re Pipeliners Union workers and family members.

The rally at the Pipeliners local 798 in Tulsa drew workers from across the country, many of whom regularly travel widely for jobs.

Many expressed enthusiasm for the Keystone XL, which would pipe crude from Canada, not just because it would provide jobs in their industry, but also because of concerns about dependence on foreign oil.
