Exciting news has broken.
This fight to stop the flow of tar sands oil in Texas has taken a dramatic turn. This morning, courageous actionistas with Rising Tide North Texas and the Tar Sands Blockade have begun tree-sits in rural East Texas blocking the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.
These eight people have taken to the trees near Winnsboro,TX in an effort to prevent oil giant TransCanada from building the pipeline from Cushing, OK to Port Arthur, TX on the Gulf Coast. This pipeline has been described as a “carbon bomb” and would signal “game over” for the climate if constructed.

These Texas tree-sitters are a last ditch effort to block the construction of the pipeline and halt the flow of tar sands oil. It’s what Rising Tide does best; direct actionistas working with local communities against the root causes of climate change.
But, now more than ever, they need your support. Blockades and mobile actions are being organized nearby and they need bodies and resources. An open call has been put out and we need you to join the Tar Sands Blockade.
Thanks for all you do.
