Tar Sands Action, Opposing Keystone XL Pipeline

Environmental leaders support Tar Sands Action

Leaders from 28 organizations concerned about climate change, environment and health have joined eleven veteran environmentalists calling for public demonstrations to urge President Obama to block the Keystone XL Pipeline that would be used to move tar sands oil from Canada to the U.S. The demonstrations are planned to occur in Washington, D.C. from August 20 through Sept. 3, 2011. Many UUs plan to participate. The letters from the leaders and more information are posted at www.tarsandsaction.org/press/.
