Tar Sands Blockade stands up to TransCanada’s Keystone XL

Activists halted construction of TransCanada’s Keystone XL pipeline in two different areas with an equipment lock-down & three tree-sit protests. Eleven were arrested throughout the day of action & multiple were brutalized by police pepper spraying crowds. Nearly 50 solidarity rallies were held across the world to bring light to the ecocide of the pipeline, bound to leak in aquifers & contaminate multiple water sources. 

About the Tar Sands Blockade campaignThe Tar Sands Blockade is an open invitation for people across North America to join a peaceful direct action campaign to stop the Keystone XL pipeline. We stand with people of all backgrounds who are fighting to save their homes, land and our planet from destruction by tar sands oil pumped by TransCanada. Tar Sands Blockade is coordinating grassroots actions across Texas and Oklahoma.

Tar Sands Blockade has joined with people from a wide variety of backgrounds who believe that the extraction of tar sands in Canada is “game over” for the climate. We are made up of several working groups and concerned individuals all contributing in their own way. Whether spreading the word on social media, meeting with ranchers who are defending their homes, or organizing public trainings or teach-ins, Tar Sands Blockade is ready to build a movement to stop the Keystone XL pipeline.
