Massive #TarSands Protest on Parliament Hill Monday, Sept 26 | OttawaAction.ca

September 25, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

OttawaAction.ca is planning a massive protest and sit-in on Parliament Hill in Ottawa to be held tomorrow, September 26.

From their website:

There comes a time when you need to take a stand. When sending letters and signing petitions isn’t enough. When together we must say, “enough is enough — not on our watch.”

In this spirit, they are hoping that the protest will be an historic action to oppose the tar sands. Many will be risking arrest to tell the Harper government that “we don’t support his reckless agenda; that we want to turn away from the toxic tar sands industry; and that we oppose the direction he’s taking this country.”

This protest comes on the heels of the two weeks of demonstrations and mass arrests that were recently held in Washington D.C. to protest the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline (see video above), which, if constructed, will transport tar sands crude through the mid-western U.S. to the Gulf of Mexico.

If you are interested and willing to take action email or go to www.ottawaaction.ca to sign-up today.
