Gandalf hates tar sands.

The ongoing Tar Sands Blockade campaign has launched an 8-person treesit in the planned path of the under-construction Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. “Construction cannot proceed until tree-sitters descend and TransCanada clear-cuts through hundreds of trees to make way for the toxic tar sands pipeline,” Tar Sands Blockade announced.

The treesitters have announced their intention to remain in the trees until the Keystone XL pipeline is stopped for good.

Tar Sands Blockade is an ongoing campaign to stop the construction of TransCanada’s Keystone pipeline through Texas and Oklahoma. The pipeline is meant to carry oil from Alberta’s tar sands to the US.

There are still plenty of ways to get involved in this campaign. Follow news of the treesit here. For some ways to get involved, read this call to action or visit Tar Sands Blockade.
