Earlier this month, the U.S. State Department released a Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement for the Keystone XL pipeline and despite evidence of the contrary, the report found there would be no significant impact on the environment should the pipeline be approved.
Can you believe it? The White House is collecting our comments on this Impact Statement. We have until mid April to tell them about the destructive truth of the Keystone XL.
You can also join in on the collective voice this week at over 30 actions and events planned to directly confront the corporate profiteers bankrolling the Keystone XL pipeline and the broader tar sands industry.
Join grassroots activists from over 50 organizations to march, hold rallies, give trainings, and physically disrupt “business-as-usual” for those who seek to profit from the exploitation of marginalized people and the destruction of our collective future. TAKE ACTION!
We are also calling on you to elevate the voices of human rights heroes actively working to protect the environment and stop climate change in Global Exchange's Human Rights Awards People's Choice contest:
- Indigenous activist Crystal Lameman is committed to raising the platform of the rights of Indigenous people and stopping the expansion of the tar sands.
- Climate activist Tim deChristopher's action of disrupting a controversial auction of public lands in Utah to save it from destructive oil and gas extraction sparked a wave of civic disobedience to bring attention to the desperate need for effective action to combat the climate crisis.
- Anti-fracking activist, Sharon Wilson has used her energy to raise awareness about the dangers of fracking after finding out about the poisoned water wells caused by hydraulic fracturing right in her backyard.
Support their work and vote for them today!
P.S. In the Bay Area? Join us on March 23rd for a big direct-action training and Idle No More round dance at the Federal Building.
