April 3 in San Francisco: Tell Obama No to the Dirty, Dangerous Keystone Oil Pipeline!
Sign up using the form below.
And then invite family and friends to attend too:
On Wednesday April 3, President Obama will be in San Francisco's Pacific Heights District for two big fundraisers. Please join Friends of the Earth, CREDO, 350, Sierra Club and others to tell him in person that he needs to cancel the Keystone pipeline from Canada once and for all!
If completed, this pipeline will enable the oil industry to fully exploit the Canadian tar sands, which contain enough carbon to radically alter our already fragile climate. It would also threaten aquifers in the Midwest and increase air pollution from refineries on the Gulf Coast. And just last week, we learned that much of the State Department’s new environmental review of Keystone is based on work done by Big Oil’s contractors.
On April 3 we need to tell the president that it's time to stand up to Big Oil and cancel this dirty, dangerous pipeline once and for all.
The last time we protested at President Obama's San Francisco fundraiser in 2011, we shocked him with a huge crowd of over 1,000 people. We know from insiders that we caused a big buzz in the White House, and our pressure worked in helping to get a postponement. We need to make an even bigger showing this time! We'll even have a marching band, courtesy of the Brass Liberation Orchestra!
President Obama alone has the power to accept or reject this project. But he's under a lot of pressure from the oil industry and its allies in Congress to pass this boondoggle. So, if you're anywhere near San Francisco on April 3 you don't want to miss this chance to tell him in person: cancel this pipeline once and for all.
Bring your family and friends for what is sure to be a fun and spirited rally.
