Tar Sands Blockade Treesit with banner "You Shall Not Pass"Our friends in Texas have erected a large tree-sit community of eight people with an indefinite amount of supplies to prevent construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline!

“Today I climbed a tree in the path of Keystone XL to demand TransCanada stop construction of this dirty and dangerous pipeline. This pipeline is a disaster for everyone it touches, from the cancer tar sands extraction is causing indigenous communities, to the water poisoned by inevitable tar sands spills, to the landowners whose land has been seized, and to everyone that will be affected by climate change,” said Mary Washington, one of the Tar Sands Blockade members sitting in a tree.
