It’s not just Keystone XL. Big Oil is trying to build and expand an enormous network of tar sands pipelines — some even bigger than Keystone XL — from Canada into the Great Lakes region. These tar sands pipelines, including the Alberta Clipper, along with crude oil trains and tankers, pose a growing risk to the Great Lakes, our rivers, our communities and our climate.
That’s why on June 6, more than 5,000 people marched in the streets of St. Paul in the Tar Sands Resistance March — the largest anti-tar sands march ever in the region. We came together and sent our message loud and clear: keep toxic tar sands out of America’s Heartland, fight for clean water, clean energy, and a safe climate!
