Tar Sands Blockade is a coalition of affected Texas and Oklahoma residents and organizers using nonviolent direct action to physically stop the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.
TAR SANDS BLOCKADE
The Tar Sands Blockade is an open invitation for people across North America to join a peaceful direct action campaign to stop the Keystone XL pipeline. We stand with people of all backgrounds who are fighting to save their homes, land and our planet from destruction by tar sands pumped by TransCanada. Tar Sands Blockade is coordinating grassroots actions across Texas and Oklahoma.
Tar Sands Blockade has joined with people from a wide variety of backgrounds who believe that the extraction of tar sands in Canada is “game over” for the climate. Tar Sands Blockade is ready to build a movement to stop the Keystone XL pipeline. And we are personally asking for your help.
RISING TIDE NORTH TEXAS
Rising Tide North Texas has a short but exciting history fighting for environmental and social justice in North Texas. We have been engaged in a campaign against fracking in Denton that has seen many small victories including the current moratorium. Rising Tide has also been active in moving Denton and the University of North Texas off of coal power. We started speaking out against the tar sands over a year ago and now, we’ve joined affected communities fighting the Keystone XL to form Tar Sands Blockade.
We are asking you join our campaign to stop toxic tar sands in Texas and Oklahoma or hold a solidarity action in your own community. It’s not just about protecting our future climate, it’s also about solidarity with communities that are currently being affected by the industries that are bringing about climate change. We are not only defending the planet, we are defending families.
Together we will stop the Keystone XL pipeline and create a just and livable world that works for people of all backgrounds.
