On March 23, Idle No More supporters gathered for prayers, songs, speeches, and round dances in front of the Federal Building in San Francisco as part of the "Next Step to Stop Keystone XL."
Wicahpiluta Candelaria, a Rumsen Ohlone cultural presenter, sang and gave the opening prayer.

Speakers included Pennie Opal Plant, Norman "Wounded Knee" DeOcampo, and Paul Flores, who all picked up on the theme of "water" and its relation to The Keystone XL pipeline.

Following the round dances, community members joined together for a singing of the American Indian Movement anthem.

Shortly after the Idle No More event, bay area activists gathered in front of the San Francisco Federal Building for nonviolent direct action training in preparation for a yet to be announced action to stop the Keystone XL pipeline.

In Canada Harper has been firing the scientists who through their own re-searches have found a deep failing in the burn-out of the oxygen from the burning of fossil fuels. Already 38-40% of global oxygen has been burned-out to carbon-dioxide or CO2, and we the air breathing plants, animals, and peoples cannot live on the carbon-dioxide replacement.

That the present time the amount of conversion of oxygen to CO2 is so great that mother nature cannot replace the oxygen in a plus way any more. So the oxygen is literally being extinguished from the atmosphere and is not being replaced fast enough. This mode of Earth survival is called the fail-safe mode.

If the Tar Sands Project and the Kinder Morgan, XL Pipeline Project goes through to the west coast it will indeed speed up the disapearance of the remaining oxygen that could possibly put the mode of Earth's ecological organic balances of life into the final mode of No Return.

Imagine that speed up Fail-Safe to go to No Return of the balances of the living web-of-life on the entire planet. NO PASARAN!! These false Projects of pollution or air, land, and water must be stopped. A.ll out to stop the U.S. Canadian, and Chinese revisionist Oil Monopoly betrayal of all life on the planet.

Pollution for money is illegal. The Tar Sands Project is a Carbon Bomb which will ruin our oxygen supply globally. Workers of the world unite!! End pollution wars, re-tool to the renewables such as wind, tidal, and solar power before there is 'no return' organically. You yet have a world to win!!
