The Keystone XL pipeline is back. The State Department under the Drumpf administration approved in March 2017 a permit authorizing TransCanada to build the KXL pipeline.
While our strategy to defeat the KXL pipeline under the previous administration involved, in part, organizing and running direct actions (with civil disobedience) at the State Dept in Washington, D.C., this time around we will “follow the money.” Climate First! will go after the banks which are funding TransCanada, and therefore indirectly the pipeline project. And we will align with Rainforest Action Network and others in an effort to defeat the climate-wrecking KXL pipeline once and for all.
Climate First!'s Keystone XL pipeline campaign is presently confronting Wells Fargo, asking the huge U.S. bank to end its financial relationship with TransCanada and its pipeline project.
Join Climate First! as we run (to-be-scheduled) peaceful direct actions against Wells Fargo in the Mid-Atlantic region sometime in May 2017.
