Protest Keystone XL at Obama's San Francisco Fundraiser

On April 3rd President Obama will be in San Francisco for a big fundraiser. Join activists from CREDO, 350, Sierra Club, the Sierra Club Loma Prieta Chapter, the SF Bay Chapter, Friends of the Earth and others, to send him a big message: Stop Keystone XL!

The last time we protested the President's San Francisco fundraiser we shocked President Obama with a huge crowd of 1,000 people. We know from insiders that we caused a big buzz in the White House. And our pressure worked. Now that the President is again considering the "game over for the climate" Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, it's time to make sure he gets the message again.

Please RSVP for the protest so we can keep you updated with the details.

    In no way is a peaceful demonstration an improper way of expressing an opinion. In fact the corporate interests spend many millions for lobbyists and in campaign contributions to influence policy. For the rest of us, who can't compete in dollars, this is an excellent way of asking our elected representatives to pay attention to the facts, and not just to those with the big bucks.

    I wish I could attend. I'm out of the area at the moment. I'll have to attend in spirit.

    With all due respect to everyone in this group, I must proclaim that while I am an environmentalist myself, and thoroughly support the protection of the natural world, I feel that it is unwise to lock horns with the government in such a bold fashion. Having read a few sources, it seems to me that the only reason that the pipeline was diverted from its original path was because of a wildlife preserve. I rather doubt that the pipeline will be diverted a second time. I recommend looking to the wisdom of Abraham Lincoln. If you want to change the world you have to work with other people, even if they disagree with you.

      Good for you Richard Blackmore for speaking up. Likewise I consider myself an environmentalist & a liberal but I do not automatically take sides. Complex issues such as this need to be weighed carefully for the overall benefit of most people & not just the vocal few.

    I am also rather uncomfortable with the false dichotomy: environment vs. government.
