So we are asking you to pledge, if necessary after the release of the draft National Interest Determination, to join with others in your community and risk arrest in acts of dignified, peaceful civil disobedience, all over the country.Will you join us in pledging resistance to the Keystone XL pipeline, including - if necessary - pledging to participate in peaceful, dignified civil disobedience? C., because this decision will affect all of us, where we live.That we should let the bankers and the oil companies profit while the planet inevitably burns. And so, that day reminded us of something else, too: Those two weeks in August of 2011, when the peaceful and dignified arrest of 1,253 people over two weeks at President Obama's front door effectively stopped what was considered a virtually guaranteed presidential approval of Keystone XL.There is still time to convince President Obama to change his mind and reject Keystone XL.But the fossil fuel industry and oil-state politicians are pushing President Obama hard for approval.Keystone XL is the president’s test for his resolve on climate - but he won’t reject it without our pressure.
Read the original call to action below, and sign the pledge to let the President know you’re standing with us, and against Keystone XL.
But with the president ignoring every possible sign Mother Nature can send, it is once again incumbent upon us to send a message he can't ignore.
That's why CREDO is joining with Bold Nebraska, The Other 98%, Hip Hop Caucus, Rainforest Action Network, 350and Oil Change International to launch the Keystone XL Pledge of Resistance. That is, we are asking you to commit - should it be necessary to stop Keystone XL -- to engage in serious, dignified, peaceful civil disobedience that could get you arrested.
As the president prepares to make his final decision, urge him to reject Keystone XL by signing the Pledge of Resistance.
Now is the time to show that you are prepared to stand with tens of thousands of others in a massive wave of peaceful and dignified civil disobedience if the State Department recommends approval.
the State Department found the project is "unlikely to have a significant impact" on tar sands development. This assessment was a vehicle for the White House to test the waters and see if the public will stand by, and buy this false and cynical argument that the tar sands will just get burned anyway.
