Bill McKibben will be at Myrtle Edwards Park for a rally against the Keystone XL Pipeline that begins at 11:00 AM on September 21st. For details click here or read below for the CREDO/350.org invitation describing how to take action against the Keystone XL Pipeline on September 21st.
The President may be trying to delay his inevitable Keystone XL decision – but our resistance isn’t going anywhere.
We’re sending that message at a sit-in at TransCanada Headquarters in Houston on September 16th. But you don’t have to travel to Houston to build pressure on President Obama.
Our friends at 350 are organizing a nationwide day of action on September 21st: “Draw the Line” events will urge President Obama to protect our communities from climate change by rejecting Keystone XL.
As one of the more than 75,000 people who have signed the Pledge of Resistance, this is a great opportunity to show the President our commitment to opposing Keystone XL – all across the country.
There are two ways you can get involved:
And bring this sign, to show that you’re willing to cross the line of risking arrest if necessary to protest approval of Keystone XL.
If there isn’t already an event near you, this is an easy way to stand with activists across the country, and send the message to the President that more than 75,000 people have pledged to risk arrest if necessary to stop Keystone XL. Your event can be simple – just bring some Pledge of Resistance signs, and maybe a copy of the pledge of resistance to your local farmers market, busy street corner or community meeting place. If you put “Pledge of Resistance” in your event title, we’ll recruit for your event by inviting others in your community to join you.
From a solar-powered barn going up in the pipeline route in Nebraska, to a tug of war between the fossil fuel industry and the climate movement in Boston, to a swimming party in a park in Jacksonville that might be underwater in the not-too-distant future — there are all kinds of creative, beautiful and fun Draw the Line actions being planned to send the message to President Obama that there is no turning back — to keep his climate promises, he has to stop Keystone XL and the tar sands.
To get involved: Find your local event, host your own “Pledge of Resistance” draw the line event, and bring this sign with you.
Thanks for helping send the message to President Obama that we’re drawing the line against Keystone XL – whether or not he’s ready to do it himself.
