Protests and meetings highlight a week's worth activity in the border town of Whiteclay, Nebraska.

The activity marks the one year annivesary of the deaths of two Lakota men, whose deaths remain unsolved. Tribal members have set up Camp Justice in response to local and federal inaction.

Camp Justice and a group called Nebraskans for Peace will be marching on Saturday to mark the deaths. Nebraska Governor Mike Johanns will be meeting with tribal leaders from the Pine Ridge Reservation in nearby South Dakota to talk about alcohol issues.

Liquor establishments in Whiteclay sell about 4 million cans of beer a year, mostly to reservation residents.
