TELL PRESIDENT OBAMA:
KEEP YOUR PROMISE ON CLIMATE CHANGE.
REJECT THE KEYSTONE PIPELINE!
As the date approaches when President Obama will have to make a decision on the Keystone Pipeline, which would bring dirty tar sands oils from Canada down to the Gulf of Mexico, actions around the country every month remind the President that we are watching him closely. WE ARE RAMPING UP THE PRESSURE.
On Sept 21 a 350.org national day of action called “Draw the Line on the Keystone Pipeline” will mobilize climate activists here in San Diego and in hundreds of cities across the U.S.
Can you help us make this HUGE?
- Invite friends, family, co-workers
- Put up flyers (flyer 1, flyer 2)and posters
- Ask organizations to endorse the action and let their supporters know about it
- Help plan the event – email us
We’ll give everyone a “President Obama I oppose the Keystone Pipeline because ______ (you fill in)” sign to hold so our message is super clear.
