January 24, 2017 (San Diego) – Tonight, over 100 San Diegans including members of the Kumeyaay Nation and local climate activists, will rally outside the Federal Building (880 Front St.) to oppose President Donald Trump's decision to move ahead with the Keystone and Dakota Access Pipeline. This is one of several actions across the country.
Both pipelines, if constructed, would carry hundreds of thousands of barrels per day of toxic fracked oil across multiple state lines and under rivers.
“These pipelines are a threat to Native heritage, homes and land, as well as drinking water, and will contribute to irreversible climate change,” a notice from 350.org, a climate change activist organization participating in tonight’s rally, states. “Tuesday’s action will demonstrate that this fight with a ruthless fossil fuel industry that puts corporate profits over people - is far from over.”
