Open Letter From Young People at the Tar Sands Action

Today we sit to demand justice. Tomorrow, we’re getting back up to organize in our communities to ensure justice. And we’re calling on you to join us.

A growing movement of young people has been organizing to build a more clean and just economy that works for all of us, addresses the climate crisis and creates jobs for those who need them. Together, we will build an economy steered by communities, not corporations.

In an act of civil disobedience, we stand together today and risk arrest in front of the White House to demand that President Obama stand up to these big corporate interests, reject the Keystone XL Pipeline permit, and put an end to this corporate-dominated madness.

In the coming weeks, we are re-launching and re-committing ourselves to campaigns that confront dirty energy in our own backyards and bring in a 100% clean and just energy economy. We will take these demands to our college campuses and communities, and together build a groundswell of movement against dirty energy and reckless corporations. We can demonstrate that once again the youth generation will lead us into the future by moving our campuses beyond coal, and demanding that it be replaced with 100% clean energy. We’re taking the fight to the grassroots with regional Power Shift convergences across the country and we will continue to come together to exercise our collective power to take direct action.

From the Tar Sands Action we have begun the journey down the path of justice, but we cannot stop here. We hope you’ll join us.
