Wed Apr 3 2013 (Updated 04/05/13)Bay Area Activists Prepare for Direct Action to Stop Keystone XL Pipeline
Wed Apr 3 2013 (Updated 04/05/13)Environmental Groups Take Next Step as Obama Shows No Sign of Rejecting Pipeline
On March 23, activists from across the Bay Area who want to stop the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline converged on the Federal Building in San Francisco to hold group civil disobedience training exercises. The day began with an Idle No More Round Dance. Later individuals prepared for close contact with the police, and practiced interlocking arms as a method of holding physical ground.
Approximately 200-300 people were in attendance. Organizers were listed as Bay Area 350.org, Tar Sands Blockade, Idle No More, and Rising Tide S.F.
An announcement for the event stated: "We have written letters, made phone calls, educated ourselves and others, demonstrated in the tens of thousands, participated in Idle No More flash mobs, and been arrested at the White House as we push President Obama to stop the Keystone XL Tar Sands Pipeline. Yet we have no sign that Obama will walk his climate talk and reject the pipeline...It's time to organize ourselves to take nonviolent direct action where we live and to raise the social and political cost for approving what James Hansen calls 'Game Over' for the climate."
