In an amazing showing of online activism, a coalition of 30 groups flooded the Senate with more than 800,000 messages opposing the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline in just 24 hours!!
"In only 24 hours, hundreds of thousands of people stood up to Big Oil and demanded that the Senate do the same by opposing all efforts to approve the harmful Keystone XL tar sands pipeline that the Obama administration wisely rejected," said LCV President Gene Karpinski. "Americans across the country refuse to let Big Oil’s congressional allies threaten our country with this toxic tar sands pipeline, and whether it’s 24 hours, days or months LCV will continue working with them to block efforts to resurrect it."
This fight is far from over -- and it's still vital that we send messages to senators urging them to oppose the risky toxic oil pipeline. Click here to take action. (And if you've already signed the petition, use our share page to encourage your family and friends to also take action.)
