Nationwide Protests To Stop #NoKXL, As Obama Delays Decision

Environmental groups have declared an "All Hands On Deck Moment" to stop the KXL: "This is an all-hands-on-deck moment to send the message to President Obama that Keystone XL fails his climate test and he must reject it. On the evening of Monday, February 3rd, we’ll come together around the country to make our voices heard. RSVP for an event near you or host your own." The call to action came after the Friday release of the U.S. State Department’s widely criticized environmental impact statement on the controversial pipeline. Common Dreams reports "Members of seven Lakota nation tribes, as well as indigenous communities in Idaho, Oklahoma, Montana, Nebraska and Oregon, are preparing to take action to stop Keystone XL, Aboriginal Peoples Television Network reports. This includes “moccasins on the ground” — a Lakota Nation program to train and support indigenous communities in taking action against the pipeline — as well as plans to set up spiritual camps along the proposed route."
