Tar Sands Extraction In the US: The War Comes Home | Earth First! Newswire

The past year has seen an impressive escalation against the Keystone XL (KXL) pipeline and the Canadian tar sands industry which the pipeline is meant to serve. From indigenous protesters with Idle No More blocking highways leading to tar sands mines in Alberta, to the Tar Sands Blockade repeatedly shutting down the construction of the southern leg of the KXL in East Texas, to over 1,000 people getting arrested in front of the White House to oppose the pipeline, it is clear that the thought of building massive new fossil fuel infrastructure in the era of catastrophic climate change strikes many people as a really, really bad idea.
