Say NO to dirty fuels and YES to clean energy!
On Saturday, May 17, join us for a joint Hands Across the Land for Kansas and Oklahoma communities and share in with the rest of the country to ask the president and local officials to reject the Keystone XL pipeline, offshore drilling, and other dirty fuel projects like the Flanagan South pipeline that threatens our communities and destabilize our climate.
The Oklahoma Sierra Club and Friends will be meeting us at The Keeper of the Plains Plaza (650 North Seneca St., Wichita, KS) on Saturday, May 17, 2014 from 2 to 4 PM. Join our community of peaceful tar sands fighters and meet inspirational speakers, scientific experts and other advocates like you. Join with us and our Native American community at the confluence of the big and little Arkansas River.
This National Day of Action is being jointly organized by the Tar Sands Coalition and Hands Across the Sand / Hands Across the Land. Hands, founded in 2010, grew into an international movement after the BP oil disaster in April of that year. People came together to join hands, forming symbolic barriers against spilled oil and the impact of other forms of extreme energy.
We invite activists across the state of Kansas and Oklahoma to join us as the nation organizes rallies, marches, and vigils that call on the president to reject KXL and other tar sands pipelines, while at the same time asking our state and local leaders to say no to the dirty fossil fuel projects that endanger our local communities. Whether it's Arctic drilling, mountaintop removal, dangerous tar sands pipelines, fracking, exporting liquid natural gas, or shipping crude by rail through our hometowns, we all have reason to be concerned -- for the health of our families, and the health of the planet.
Join hands! Join us!
