Itís down to the wire now. The
State Department has just released its final assessment of the Keystone
XL pipeline, and President Obama is expected to make a decision within
the next three months. Will you join us to take a stand in the streets against the latest war on the environment?
CODEPINK has joined 350.org, CREDO, Sierra Club, Rainforest Action Network
and many other groups to host emergency protest vigils across the
country tonight to urge the President to reject the Keystone XL. Our entire CODEPINK staff has signed onto the Pledge of Resistance, and hope you will join us in the streets tonight at a location near you.
President Obama has the facts he needs to reject the pipeline. Expected to carry 800,000 barrels per day and spew three times more climate pollution than conventional oil, this would be a disaster for the climate, and the lives of Indigenous communities, farmers and homes along the pipelineís route.
Itís no secret that if we spent less money on the bloated Pentagon budget we could afford green energy technology. Green energy would create sustainable jobs, take our troops out of harmís way, and protect the environment.
Join us tonight and over the next three months to call on President Obama to reject the Keystone XL Pipeline NOW!
Toward a greener future,
