Tar Sands Rally at the Texas Capitol
5:00 – 8:00 p.m.

If the Keystone XL tar sands oil pipeline is permitted, millions of gallons of the dirtiest oil in the world would be piped across America’s heartland -– endangering drinking water, and the aquifer that irrigates America’s breadbasket. The pipeline cuts straight through the heart of North East Texas and runs down to Galveston and is using eminent domain to steal land from farmers.
Is this a chance you’re willing to take?
Because TransCanada’s pipeline will be going through Canada and the USA, it is up to the State Department to give the approval for the pipeline. President Obama doesn’t have to lobby congress to stop this pipeline, all he’s got to do is say NO.
Ride, walk, bus, and bring a friend to the Capitol on Saturday, September 24th at 5pm. Stand up against corporate greed that puts profits over people and the planet. Tell President Obama to say NO to the Keystone XL!
Musical guests include legendary singer/songwriter/storyteller Bobby Bridger, heavy blues outfit The Black Owl Society and artist/songstress Wendy Hale Davis.
