The State Department just issued its final report on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. Oil companies are spinning it as a victory, but the facts in the report provide President Obama with all he needs to reject the pipeline as a threat to our climate–a decision he will make within weeks.
On Monday, KXL pipeline opponents are holding events across the country to tell President Obama to reject the pipeline and make good on his promise to act on climate change. Pipeline opponents in Harrisonburg will gather on the sidewalk in front of the courthouse on Main St. at 6:00PM for a candlelight vigil to make our voices heard in opposition to KXL. Bring your own sign or poster if you’d like, and your own statement of opposition to KXL. Come and be heard! – Ralph Grove, Shenandoah Group of the Sierra Club
Many members of CAAV were among the few dozen participants of this candlelight vigil in protest against the Keystone XL pipeline.
Jonathan Shacat does a nice job of covering the event for the February 5, 2014, edition of the Daily News-Record here: Pipeline Opponents Take Stance Downtown.
