Watch Neil Young address protest march: "Make a statement for world history."

Neil Young was among thousands of people who took to the streets in Washington, D.C. on Saturday [April 26], urging the Obama administration to reject a proposed pipeline. Scroll down to watch him address the march.

The rally was a culmination of a five-day "Reject and Protect" protest against the controversial Keystone XL pipeline project, which would bring diluted bitumen from Alberta to refineries in the Gulf Coast.

Earlier this year, Young played four shows in Canada under the banner "Honor The Treaties", which supported a Native Canadian group that are battling oil companies over proposed development in the Albertan tar sands.
