Rallies and other actions in solidarity with the Tar Sands Action in Washington DC have been taking place across the country, and across the world.
Along with a rally that greeted President Obama in Minneapolis, Minnesota, young folks in Seattle, Washington visited an Organizing for America office to send a message to the President.
Just as impressive, solidarity action have been popping up globally:
Yesterday in Wellington, New Zealand, protestors shut down the Canadian Embassy for three hours with a spirited protest – pictured above.
But that’s not all. At the beginning of our demonstration in DC< German climate organizers led a bike protest through Berlin that visited major sites connected to the tar sands, including the Canadian Embassy.
In Durban, South Africa a picket against the Keystone XL pipeline met Sec. of State Hillary Clinton when she visited the US Embassy there. Across Africa, climate activists working with 350.org have been visiting Canadian and US embassies to deliver messages demanding an end to tar sands development. Similar actions also took place in Rio de Janeiro, Bonn, Mumbai, Sao Paolo, and Lima.
Canadians will join in on September 26th at The Ottawa Action.
This truly is a movement in motion.
