    Sands Action

*Event Description:
*
GreenPort's monthly forum: "Campaign to Stop the Tar Sands Pipeline". 
Screening and discussion of "Downstream" -- a documentary on the 
Aboriginal community of Fort Chipewyan located downstream from one of 
the most polluting operations in the world -- the tar sands of Alberta, 
Canada, where crude oil is extracted for export to refineries in Canada 
and the US. Obama has the power to approve or deny the permit for the 
Keystone XL Pipeline from the tar sands to the Gulf.  Also, arrestees 
from last August's Tar Sands Action of civil-disobedience at the White 
House will lead a discussion about the campaign to stop the pipeline. 
  We will also have a report back from Tar Sands Action's November 6th 
encirclement of the White House.

Please read website to learn how you can join this campaign to stand up 
to big oil:
