Tar Sands Resistance March

SIGN UP AND MORE INFO: http://tarsandsresistance.org/?source=FB

Today, the Midwest faces an unprecedented invasion of Canadian tar sands oil, thanks to the expansion plans of oil pipeline giant Enbridge.

But even after the hottest year ever in human history, and spill after toxic spill, our elected officials have failed to stand up to Big Oil and protect our communities from the threat of tar sands pipelines.

It’s never been clearer that the time is now for massive mobilization. That’s why on June 6th, thousands of people will be converging in St. Paul MN for the largest anti-tar sands march the Midwest has ever seen. We will tell all of our elected leaders that they need to stand up for our land, water andclimate, and keep tar sands oil in the ground.

Bold, people-powered action has put a stop to Keystone XL for over 4 years now, and stopped pipeline plans heading west and east from the Alberta tar sands. And it’s how we’ll stop this scheme to treat our communities like a tar sands superhighway. 

Mass mobilization works. Big Oil hates to see their dirty plans dragged out into the light of day, because they know that the more people find out about this stuff, the more they oppose it.

A region-wide coalition — including many 350 local groups, the Sierra Club, Indigenous Environmental Network, Energy Action Coalition, and many more from across the Midwest — has already jumped in to making this event massive.

Big Oil sees the Midwest as a route for oil. We see it as our homes, our communities — our future. They want us to take all the risk for their rewards.

Many more details are on their way, but for now: circle June 6th on your calendar, and get ready to march to resist tar sands.

    First Universalist Church of Minneapolis’ Environmental Justice Team is organizing for this event. Minnesota UU Social Justice Alliance is on board. We will join with others of faith by marching with the Minnesota Interfaith Power & Light contingent. I hope all regional UUs concerned about climate will join in on June 6th for the Tar Sands Resistance March.
