From @InterOcc: Occupy Denver Calls On All Available Occupy Networks to Mobilize Against Keystone XL Pipeline Januar...
Occupy Denver stands in solidarity with The Tar Sands Blockade, and is calling for national and international mobilization and solidarity actions against the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline. Tar sands giant TransCanada has begun construction on the southern leg of the Keystone XL. Leading NASA Climate Scientist James Hansen has called the Keystone XL “game over” for the climate, and Americans are already feeling the heat. The pipeline will make TransCanada rich while encroaching on ranch lands, poisoning Texas’ working class communities, and destroying the environment that makes the lone star state so beautiful.
Kick off the new year by demonstrating your resistance to Keystone XL!
Join us for another mass action in Southeast Texas on Monday, January 7th, including a 3 day training camp leading up to the big event. Our trainings and events are open and include roles for everyone ready to defend our homes from toxic tar sands.
RSVP right now so we can know how many people to expect.

Thursday, Jan. 3rd – Travel & Arrival
Friday, Jan. 4th – Day 1: Direct Action Training Camp

reading the comment sections of the CBC etc. The PTB, and generations of unchallenged bigotry have so successfully portrayed the First Nations as lazy freeloaders, that people don't realize that support of the Idle No More movement is in everyone's best interest.
By the prevailing logic and attitudes; collectively we all deserve to be drinking Tar Sand water, get contractually swindled, and loose property ownership and constitutional rights.
On Edit. Doh, I musta' responded to the wrong post. Although Idle No More is involved against the resource and land-grab of Keystone XL and other pipelines.
