Tue Jun 4 2013 (Updated 08/09/13)Zuckerberg Led PAC Supports XL Pipeline, Demonstrators Fire Back with Protests
Tue Jun 4 2013 (Updated 08/09/13)Environmentalists Bird Dog Facebook CEO at Work and at Home
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg's new lobbying group has spent big money on ads to advocate for the Keystone XL pipeline, riling Bay Area environmentalists. Activists rallied near the CEO's San Francisco home on June 1st. Members of the Keystone XL Action Council previously spearheaded an action on May 1st at the company's headquarters in Menlo Park.
Demonstrators say they are appalled that political group FWD.US, co-founded by Zuckerberg and others in the tech industry, bills itself as a bipartisan entity dedicated to passing immigration reform, but has spent considerable resources on ads advocating anti-environmental causes including promoting construction of the the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.
Last month protesters built a mock pipeline in front of Facebook headquarters in Menlo Park and posed in front of the famous "thumbs up" signage on the company's lawn with their own thumbs down. Then on June 1st, activists marched in hazmat costumes and carried their pipeline up the street in Mr. Zuckerberg's San Francisco neighborhood. They projected a giant outdoor film screening about the dangers of the Keystone XL against a wall near his new home.
