Rally to Stop the Keystone XL Pipeline

It’s never been clearer that we need bold and immediate climate leadership - that’s why this Presidents Day weekend thousands of activists will head to the White House and tell President Obama to shut down the climate-killing Keystone XL pipeline once and for all.

Something this big has to start early, and it has to start with the people who care the most. Commit to join us in Washington D.C. on February 17th and make Presidents Day the biggest climate demonstration yet: act.350.org/signup/presidentsday/

The last time we stood up against Keystone XL, thousands of us surrounded the White House – and it worked. Right when every political and energy “expert” said the tar sands pipeline was a done deal, we beat the odds and convinced President Obama to take a year to study it.

Now that year is over, and Mother Nature has filed her public comments: the hottest year in American history, a horrible ongoing drought, and superstorm Sandy. And still Big Oil is pushing as hard as ever for their pet project, looking for even more private profit at public expense.

There is also good news: Together, we’ve proven time and time again that grassroots voices can speak louder than Big Oil’s dollars. So this Presidents Day, the Sierra Club, 350.org, and other environmental groups are working with our partners across the progressive community to organize the biggest climate demonstration yet.

Our goal for Presidents Day is to form a massive human pipeline through Washington, and then transform it into a giant symbol of the renewable energy future we need - and are ready to build, starting right away.

You can make this a President’s Day that the president can’t ignore and won’t forget – sign up to join the rally, bring your friends, and stop the climate-killing Keystone XL pipeline on February 17th: act.350.org/signup/presidentsday/

    I hope everyone has signed up for the buses to Washington, DC, but if you haven't please do so. The buses may be full, but you can be put on the waitlist and we will be organizing car pools and other rides to get to the rally.

    The price is higher than originally thought(around $35) but if this is too much I can see if we can adjust the price.

    350CT and CT Sierra Club are organizing a bus from New Haven to Washington DC for the rally. Details will be coming out shortly but based on the previous cost we will be asking for a $20 donation to cover the cost. If you can't afford it, you are still welcome to join the ride and if you can give more to help some other people get to the rally it would be much appreciated.

    Although I reside in Upstate NY I will be in New Haven Feb 15-18 and was hoping to find a bus to rally with your group.
