Earth Day Action for Environmental & Climate Justice! Tell the White House, Congress and US EPA: Protect Our Climate, Health & Communities, Not Polluters! Stop Environmental Injustice!

RSVP on Facebook.

Join Idle No More, Greenaction for Health and Environmental Justice, Communities for a Better Environment, and over 60 other environmental and climate justice groups on Earth Day as we gather at the San Francisco office of the EPA to make them listen to communities hardest hit by fossil fuel and toxic industries.  We will demand the EPA do their job and protect our climate, health & communities, not polluters--and senior EPA officials will be there to listen.

MONDAY, APRIL 22, 2013    
12 noon: Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), 75 Hawthorne St., SF (between 2nd/3rd & Howard/Folsom St, near Montgomery BART/MUNI)
1:45pm: March to State Department: NO KEYSTONE XL!
2:15pm: State Department, One Market Plaza

From the EPA, we'll march to the State Department at One Market Plaza.  In addition to Earth Day, it's also the last day for public comment on the Keystone XL Pipeline’s Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS), written in part by a TransCanada (pipeline company) consultant.  We'll give them our comments loud and clear, just in case they don’t hear the hundreds of thousands of comments being emailed or the outrage of people forced from their from their homes by the Arkansas oil pipeline spill. 

All actions will be peaceful and non-violent.
