Keystone XL Pipeline Biggest Tar Sands Protest in History

Keystone XL Pipeline Review Raise More Concerns
More pro-pipeline bias and conflict of interest found - “The further evidence of collaboration between State Department officials and TransCanada that these documents provide should disqualify the unrepentant State Department from playing any role in the new environmental review," Source

Petition: Tell TransCanada: Stop threatening the property of landowners for your dirty, unapproved pipeline. Petition: http://act.credoaction.com/campaign/tc_eminent_domain/ US only
"Even though TransCanada doesn't have a presidential permit to build the pipeline, the company has been threatening to confiscate properties like this from people.."

TransCanada Lobbying Keystone XL Pipeline Half a Million
Lobbyists for TransCanada and the Keystone XL Tar Sands / Oil Sands Pipeline, who have have direct ties to the Obama Administration and Hillary Clinton,
spent $540 000 in the 3rd quarter lobbying the State and citizens.  Source

 Update: "Fortunately, our Keystone XL campaign has also shown us that democracy and the right to protest our government can be a path toward accomplishing goals: Just last week, President Obama announced his administration’s decision to delay the permit process for the Keystone XL project and seek a new environmental impact review. This could force the administration to realize what we already know: that the Keystone XL is not in our national interest." Source 

No Keystone XL No Pipeline No Enbridge, No TarSands Expansion!
The Dalai Lama and Archbishop Tutu along with seven other Nobel Peace Prize winners wrote a letter to the president asking that he block the pipeline. 1253 arrested Source

Obama hires another ex-oil lobbyist as a senior adviser:

No Keystone Pipeline No Tar Sands Protest

From Tarsands Action:
On Sunday November 6 the Tar Sands Action will return to Washington DC to send an unmistakable message to the President. Exactly one year before the election, we want to encircle the whole White House to ask President Obama to reject Keystone XL and live up to his promise to free us from the tyranny of oil. In doing so, we want to remind him of the power of the movement that he rode to the White House in 2008. This is bigger than any one person - President or no - and we will carry on, with or without him.

No Tarsands Pipeline Petitions

Sign ups and Rally Dates 5000 people have already signed up
Update: Over 10000 people gathered at the White House to protest the Keystone XL Transcanada Pipeline.

Giant Loophole in the hearings of the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline sends 10000 public statements into a virtual blackhole.  No one is obligated to "look" at them, if they choose.

State Departments to review Keystone XL

"...The inspector general's review will be widespread, involving several State Department bureaus and officials "

Fact Check: Keystone XL Tar Sands Pipeline Isn’t A Job Creator

.."Pipeline could actually cost jobs by hurting the development of alternative energy and allowing for the export of oil from the Midwest and driving up the cost of gasoline in that region."

"By repeating inflated numbers, the supporters of KXL approval are doing an injustice to the American public in that expectations are raised for jobs that simply cannot be met. These numbers —hundreds of thousands of jobs!—then get packaged as if KXL were a major jobs program capable of registering some kind of significant impact on unemployment levels and the overall economy. This is plainly untrue."

Why Occupy 1500 Cities Occupy for Real Democracy, Equality, Justice, Peace.

1700 cities worldwide are Occupying. All our political "leaders" make promises never kept, always at the detriment to the people they serve. The problem goes beyond the parties and politicians, it's the system that is protested. All our politicians are in the pocket of a few elite who own, lobby, litigate, bully and bribe their way into every element of our lives. Even single cell organisms unite and fight for survival when their species is threatened.

From what banks have done to the people of the US, to Monsanto's global destruction, to the big oil companies with private profits and public liability. 20 years of litigation was the answer to First Nations dieing downstream from the tar-sands. Average earner salary has dropped while the 1% has made 300% profits in the last 10 years. Our public servants serve these Corps. with bias data, subsidies, lobbyists, litigation and bias media. It's profit for very few, to the huge detriment of every aspects of all our lives. After 9 "secret meetings", presently our Harper Gov. wants to sell our water,  education, health, food, public services, energy,etc... with "CETA" trade deal. Our current monetary systems are broken with virtual bank money being paid back with real money and real interest by real people.

Over 1700 cities worldwide are currently in "Occupation" to bring to light these issues and demand better of the "system" and "leaders".
From what I gather. ;^)

GMO in our Foods
Monsanto GMO lab rats saw intestinal bleeding, reproductive and behavioral disorders within 10 days of eating this patented "Foods". GM "foods" studies with rats caused major compromises to the digestive tract including tumors and bleeding (instantly corrected once GM food was removed) Reproductive function of rats was mutated within 10 days. In hamsters, by the 3rd generation, all offspring were sterile when fed Monsanto GM foods. Most people don't know what they are eating in North America were the GM foods are not labelled. The UK must label the GM foods. Making it a consumer choice should be mandatory.

At least three possible cures for cancer silenced. Canada blocks a cure for cancer for profit. "Big Pharma can't allow cancer or any other disease to be cured because they will lose their business of drugs, pills and all the illness.."

G20 Sponsored by Corporations and Banks
Our public representatives need to do their job. Globally, the corporate shill of government we all have needs a reality check. When pharmaceutical company's profits legally silence the cure for cancer, and the private gains of a few oil tycoons or Monsanto shareholders trumps human life (including Canada) our government's agenda no longer represents the people. When our MP can no longer speak without first being approved by Harper in parliament, this is no longer a democracy. This is a tyranical dictatorship.

More conflict of interests for the Keystone XL?

More Tarsands (Oil Sands) Corruption? Conflict of Interest? or just low morals? "Although the group's executive director has claimed that the website is "100 percent independent of government and industry," the Ethical Oil Institute shares the exact mailing address of a prominent tar sands law firm, McLennan Ross LLP.

Occupy Vancouver - Global Revolution - Occupy Wall Street

Occupy Vancouver Canada
♥ We Just got back from the Occupy Vancouver Global Revolution rally and march. It was amazing. 4000 voices, so many souls standing up for democracy and to make the world a better place. Joining 2200 cities worldwide in a collective outcry for change was really profound. ♥

Enjoy the video I compiled to commemorate the mass awakening of the world.
Most didn't even know of these atrocities our governments subjects us to. To no fault of their own, citizens have been mislead to support these horrors. Consumers now cannot ignore the part they play for the 1%. People can no longer feed the status-quo and fain ignorance. B
ringing to light issues that compromise everyone, in a way I've never seen before in my lifetime was a profound experience.

Get corporations out of our governments. Represent the people, not self interest not the elite.
The corruption of the 1% is compromising our health, our land, our water, our freedoms, and our future. What was hidden is now clear.  

From Keystone to Monsanto, the government's practice of endorsing these atrocities can no longer be hidden. The message has rung out loud and clear worldwide. When people respond with their pocketbooks, this will be the change. Knowledge is power. We are the change.

The World vs. Wall Street Petition
Avaaz petition has hit 800 000 signatures and counting. Knowledge is power. We stand with you in this struggle for real democracy. Together we can end the capture and corruption of our governments by corporate and wealthy elites, and hold our politicians accountable to serve the public interest. We are united - the time for change has come!

Wow. 436 000 signatures and counting! ♥

Keystone Pipeline Report Bias Enbridge Spill Cover Up

State Department Lies about Keystone XL pipeline, calling Environmental Review impartial within the first minute of the public hearings:

Serious Conflict of Interest regarding Environmental Reviews pertaining to the proposed Keystone XL pipeline. "At TransCanada’s recommendation, the department hired Cardno Entrix, an environmental contractor based in Houston, even though it had previously worked on projects with TransCanada and describes the pipeline company as a “major client” in its marketing materials."

With grossly inflated unsubstantiated job numbers, environmental assessments done by paid advisers.

In a letter to Mr. Obama, leaders of 17 green groups said State officials had shown “pro-industry bias” throughout the department’s review of TransCanada’s application.

Washington - New documents reveal the US State Department was “doing favors” for TransCanada during a government review of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline and sheds light on a White House bias in favor of the pipeline.

Enbridge Covers Up Oil Spill with Grass
Taken in Marshall, Michigan, one year after the July 2010 spill into the Kalamazoo River watershed. Enbridge covers 800 000 gallons of spilled oil from a pipeline burst with sand and mesh grass and says it cleaned up. Talk about sweeping it under the rug. When this man cuts the mesh covering the oil, he sinks to his waist in oil.


4000 lbs (2 tonnes) of our beautiful Boreal Forest bed must be destroyed for one $60 barrel of oil. Even without expansion, the tarsands are currently the size of England. Please help!?

In March, the Pew Environmental Group released a report stating mining, oil and gas operations in the boreal are having a huge impact on the region’s freshwater supply. The report states 40 percent of boreal habitat being displaced (740,000 acres) for tar sands strip mining are wetlands.

Ethical Oil!? When we sit back, we allow men of lesser honor to rule us. 

We must no allow this massive expansion to destroy us. The Lupicon Cree's plight is our Canary in the coal mine with regards to our son of an oil baron "leader" Stephan Harper's attitude towards collateral damage is to litigate the sick and dying for 20 years:
