Hands Across the Land – Keystone Pipeline Rally – Metro KC – Sat May 17

Keystone-StopEnd Big Oil’s Control of our Democracy.  Say #NOKXL! We must go out of our way and interrupt our daily lives so that dirty fuels STAY IN THE GROUND.  We are not doing enough to make the transition to cleaner fuels.  This is an opportunity to speak out.  Please join us.  Craig Wolfe

On Saturday, May 17, Kansas City will join communities around the country to ask President Obama and local officials to reject the Keystone XL pipeline, offshore drilling, and other dirty fuel projects that threaten our communities and destabilize our climate.

Here in Kansas City, we’ll stand together to oppose not only the tar sands and other forms of extreme energy but we’ll reject Big Oil’s pollution of democracy by ritually cleansing Uncle Sam before marching through the Plaza to the Brush Creek Pedestrian Bridge to take our photo linking hands.

This National Day of Action is being jointly organized by the Tar Sands Coalition and Hands Across the Sand / Hands Across the Land. Hands, founded in 2010, grew into an international movement after the BP oil disaster in April of that year. People came together to join hands, forming symbolic barriers against spilled oil and the impact of other forms of extreme energy. The local event is organized by 350KC (350KC.org).

Join hands! Join us!
