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.

‘We need to end the age of fossil fuels and move on to something better,’ Neil Young told the crowd on Saturday.

The march was the latest protest by the ‘Cowboy and Indian Alliance’, a group of First Nations people, farmers and ranchers living along the pipeline route. The group has been protesting all week in the American capital.
