“That pipeline will not be built as long as I’m breathing”

[jwplayer config=”16_9_copy” mediaid=”4446″]

On January 7th 2013, over a hundred people stormed the offices of TransCanada, the proponents of the Keystone XL pipeline, that if built would bring dirty tar sands oil from Alberta, Canada to refineries in Texas. The folks from Tar Sands Blockade have become a fuckin pain in the ass for TransaCanada for the past several months, as blockades and direct actions have sabotaged  and delayed the construction of this deadly oil tube.

From their website:

Tar Sands Blockade LogoTar Sands Blockade has joined with people from a wide variety of backgrounds who believe that the extraction of tar sands in Canada is “game over” for the climate. Tar Sands Blockade is ready to build a movement to stop the Keystone XL pipeline. And we are personally asking for your help.
