Perhaps some of you in the area have heard about the environmental campaign Tar Sands Blockade. For those who don’t know about Tar Sands Blockade here’s a summary I pulled from the website:
STAND WITH US AGAINST THE KEYSTONE XL PIPELINE
A coalition of climate justice activists are converging from across the continent with local organizers and landowners to put a final stop to the Keystone XL pipeline in Texas.
Tar sands giant TransCanada has begun construction on the southern leg of the Keystone XL.
TransCanada has used money to influence elected representatives and to intimidate landowners, rural communities, and jeopardize the environment. The Tar Sands Blockade is calling on you to join one of our rolling actions to shut this pipeline down.
The action is committed to non-violence, and is using direct action to physically stop the pipeline. As both a pledge to protecting private property rights and our environment, I feel left-libertarians should be aware of Tar Sands and how it really highlights some key principles put forth by ALL.
The campaign is in day 37 of their fight against the pipeline. They need help and support to keep this going as long as it takes to win! DFW ALL fully supports our friends with Tar Sands Blockade and wants to see this pipeline defeated!
