Happening Now: Tar Sands Activists Barricade Themselves Inside Keystone XL

• Common Dreams

Activists in Texas have taken their fight to stop the tar sands directly to belly of the beast Monday morning -- by sealing themselves inside of a section of pipe that will be part of the Keystone XL pipeline.

The direct action by two activists with Tar Sands Blockade, Matt Almonte and Glen Collins, is part of an ongoing series of actions aimed at stopping the construction of the TransCanada's tar sands-carrying Keystone XL pipeline.

"I’m barricading this pipe with Tar Sands Blockade today to say loud and clear to the extraction industry that our communities and the resources we depend on for survival are not collateral damage," said Collins.
