Obama rejected the pipeline! But the oil lobby is already working to get around him.
There’s going to be a local rally against the pipeline at the Seattle Center, and the organizers hope to get a thousand people there. It was going to be Feb 5 but they want to set a new date.
I talked with one of the organizers today and there are three ways we could help. One, of course, is to attend the rally; maybe we could get a group and go together? The second is to help out at the event – anything from setup to putting up signs to helping lead a workshop; workshops and presentations can be on any energy-related topic (Coal Trains! the solar panels in Jefferson Park! etc). And the third is to help plan, promote and organize the event.
