A rally has been called for September 3rd, the final day of the Tar Sands Action:
When: September 3rd, at NOON
Where: Lafayette Park, in front of the White House
Why: President Barack Obama will decide this Fall whether to light a fuse to the largest carbon bomb in North America. That bomb is the massive tar sands field in Canada’s Alberta province. And the fuse is the 1,700-mile long Keystone XL Pipeline that would transport this dirtiest of petroleum fuels all the way to Texas refineries.
America doesn’t want another oil spill! Obama needs to see us turn out in full force in order to veto the pipeline, so now’s the time to circle up and gather our allies!
Who: Bill McKibben, Naomi Klein, leaders of the North American climate movement, youth, indigenous leaders, farmers, landowners, and anyone else impacted by the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.
