BREAKING: Keystone XL and Dakota Access

This morning Donald Trump signed executive actions that attempt to restart the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline and the Dakota Access fracked oil pipeline.

Take the Pipeline Pledge

Donald Trump has signed executive actions restarting the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline and the Dakota Access fracked oil pipeline. We are asking everyone who spoke up, marched or sat-in to stand up and show Trump that our solidarity with frontline leadership is unshakable, and he has severely miscalculated: the opposition will only increase from here. We will oppose every fossil fuel project that violates the science of climate action, the rights of Tribes and the will of the people. Join the Pledge of Pipeline Resistance to be part of the first wave of action to stop Trump’s pipeline plans.

Take the Pledge

Stop the Dakota Access Pipeline

The Dakota Access Pipeline must be stopped. This pipeline would carry toxic fracked oil from North Dakota across four states, and under the Missouri River immediately upstream from the Standing Rock Sioux Nation. That makes it a threat to the sacred land and water of native communities and a disaster for the climate. President Obama could step in any time and say “no” to this whole thing, like he did for Keystone XL.

Keep it in the Ground: Sweden

The Swedish government recently allowed state-owned company Vattenfall to sell their coal reserves in Germany — a decision  which means the release of at least 24x Sweden’s annual carbon emissions if that coal is burnt. In response, people are pledging to organise and escalate actions to keep fossil fuels in the ground.

Take the pledge

Break Free from Fossil Fuels

World governments have agreed to global action — but without a clear commitment on how and when they will transition off of fossil fuels. The way to make that transition a reality is by organizing to keep coal, oil and gas in the ground and accelerate the just transition to 100% renewable energy. It’s time to break free from fossil fuels, and it’s up to the people to make it happen. Break Free will be a series of major coordinated actions around the globe that will take on the world’s biggest fossil fuel projects and companies.
