Note: If you haven’t noticed, there is an epic fight going on in Texas to stop TransCanada’s Keystone XL pipeline. Consecutive and ongoing blockades and tree sits have delayed construction for weeks, and have inspired people across the country to embrace direct action campaigns against the Tar Sands. All the while, TransCanada continues to order workers to fell trees dangerously close to blockaders, embraces torture tactics against activists and intimidates private property owners who are resisting the illegal seizure of their land. If you are looking for a great way to pass the time, consider heading down to Texas to join in the fight. You can attend the Tar Sands Direct Action Training Camp on October 12-14 in East Texas to get trained and get involved.
