Tar Sands Action Day Eight: ‘This Is Not The Change We Hoped For’

Being mindful of the State of Emergency declared because of the carbon-fueled Hurricane Irene, the Tar Sands Action protesters held a rally on Saturday, but did not engage in civil disobedience. Saturday evening, the demonstrators against the building of a tar sands pipeline to Texas are holding the Artists For the Climate event, How to Defuse a Carbon Bomb. Sunday’s demonstrations are cancelled, as Hurricane Irene demonstrates how dangerously powerful the climate is, and the madness of deliberately adding over one billion tons of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere by building the Keystone XL pipeline.
