As Pres. Obama inches closer to releasing a decision about the fate of the KXL pipeline many of us actively opposing the pipeline have witnessed a well orchestrated & lavishly funded attempt by the fossil fuel industry to use any opportunity to blunt the enormous groundswell of opposition to tar sands extraction and transport. That same fossil fuel industry has employed the time tested “divide and conquer” approach to solving the “problem” we pose. TransCanada Corp (TC) & their cohearts in PM Harper's Canadian govt have certainly attempted to buy “cooperation” here or made insincere concessions there that they have no intention of honoring and a host of other dirty tricks in their petro $ lined black bag.
This international Unity Statement that will be presented to TransCanada's US headquarters in Houston TX is our response to make clear that their attempt to silence our voice has failed.
No tar sands extraction in Canada, in the US, anywhere. No dangerous transporting this toxic dirty petroleum mixture, don't even call it OIL, by rail, road, pipeline or sea.
No new Flanagan South or Seaway tar sands pipelines & no reoperation of the old defective Pegasus tar sands pipeline,
And specifically, NO KXL PIPELINE.
Join the effort, sign this Unity Statement petition that will be delivered to TransCanada's and other tar sands corporations' front doors soon.
