STOP KEYSTONE XL

Join Idle No More, Greenaction for Health and Environmental Justice, Communities for a Better Environment, and over 60 other environmental and climate justice groups on Earth Day as we gather at the San Francisco office of the EPA to make them listen to communities hardest hit by fossil fuel and toxic industries. We will demand the EPA do their job and protect our climate, health & communities, not polluters--and senior EPA officials will be there to listen.

>From the EPA, we'll march to the State Department at One Market Plaza. In addition to Earth Day, it's also the last day for public comment on the Keystone XL Pipeline’s Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS), written in part by a TransCanada (pipeline company) consultant. We'll give them our comments loud and clear, just in case they don’t hear the hundreds of thousands of comments being emailed or the outrage of people forced from their from their homes by the Arkansas oil pipeline spill.

All actions will be peaceful and non-violent.

First, I'm glad to see the support for this but we need to go further. I'm a 60's child growing up in Bezerkeley where if a simple boycott could have stop the War in Viet Nam like Stop Driving (org) Global Warming, it would have been done. We always in Amerikkklan lie to ourselves that it is not me it's the oil companies and the corrupt politicians (Obombma Pakistan, Afghanistan, Libya, Iraq and Yemen) while we keep driving we call this the cake and it crew or hypocrites. We need to get out of our cars and support the Indigenous non-movement on 9-11 (Inside Job) and stop driving for four days. If we cannot show that we can get out of our cars then we are just pissing in the wind and the KKKorporate oligarchy are just going to continue.
