Direct Action Against the Keystone XL Pipeline
“Today I climbed a tree in the path of Keystone XL to demand TransCanada stop construction of this dirty and dangerous pipeline. This pipeline is a disaster for everyone it touches, from the cancer tar sands extraction is causing indigenous communities, to the water poisoned by inevitable tar sands spills, to the landowners whose land has been seized, and to everyone that will be affected by climate change,” said Mary Washington, one of the Tar Sands Blockade members participating in the action.
The Tar Sands Blockade describes itself as an alliance of climate justice organizers, Tea Party members and affected landowners using sustained civil disobedience to stop construction of the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.
