"Groups Ratchet Up Pressure on Keystone XL Pipeline With High-Profile Support and Full-Page Ad in Washington Post"
This Sunday, November 6th, activists are going to surround the White House in a show of protest against the Keystone XL Pipeline. So far, 10,000 people have reportedly signed up to join the protests.
In the lead up to Sunday’s demonstration, Tar Sands Action and NRDC took out a full page ad in today’s Washington Post to put the pressure on Obama, who now says he’s the “decider” on approval of the pipeline.
Organizers have also gained the support of celebrities like Robert Redford, Mark Ruffalo, Daryl Hannah, David Strathairn, and now, Julia Louis-Dreyfus — an actress best known for playing Elaine on the sitcom Seinfeld.
In this latest video, Louis-Dreyfus calls on President Obama to live up to his goal of freeing the nation “from the tyranny of oil.”
