Hello from OccupyKochTown - Fight Tar Sands in collaboration with Sierra Club 2/17-19/12 pt.2



























P.S. Casual remarks from Wichitans along the route of Saturday's march indicate that they do not know the Koch bro's Tar Sands Pipeline project is for FOREIGN oil on its way to ASIAN markets, nor that it is estimated to raise the price of a barrel of oil by $3.00.

Hello from OccupyKochTown - Fight Tar Sands in collaboration with Sierra Club 2/17-19/12 pt.1

OccupyWichita hosted OccupyTulsa, OccupyCentralOklahoma, OccupyKU, OccupyKC, and the Sierra Club. There was community education, marching to the Kansas Policy Institute, Wichita Chamber of Commerce, and a Women's fair in downtown Wichita on Saturday. On Sunday the coalition collaborated in a GA and then marched to and mic checked their message loud and clear, despite a few counter-protestors, to Koch HQ on the outskirts of Wichita. The people's mic closed with a strong unanimous promise to continue to fight the XL Tar Sands Pipeline project and to return to Koch HQ.
