MT @isf_kidsarmy_be: Telling their stories: The Fight to Stop the Keystone XL Tar Sands Oil Pipeline

Friends of the Earth’s dirty fuels campaign is working to stop the proposed Keystone XL pipeline, which would carry dirty tar sands oil from Canada across six U.S. states to refineries in Texas. We're fighting this pipeline in solidarity with individuals that are already impacted by tar sands oil extraction and with individuals who would be directly impacted by the Keystone XL pipeline. We have compiled some of their stories to share with you. These interviews speak directly to the environmental and personal impacts the pipeline could have on many communities. They also inspire action to fight back against the Keytone XL pipeline and tar sands oil.
