As President Obama’s motorcade made its way through Austin earlier this week, members of the Tar Sands Blockade were there with a message: No tar sands in Texas! We wanted to remind him about his decision to sell out Texan landowners by endorsing construction of the southern portion of Keystone XL.
We demand that his Administration requires a full environmental impact statement that considers the full impacts of climate change. We are having a direct action training weekend July 27th-29th here in Texas. If you are ready to join us in sending a message to Big Oil and to our politicians, join the blockade and together we will stop Keystone XL.
Check out these awesome banners folks from Austin made for us.
