My name is Ildiko Polony, I live in San Francisco, CA, I’m a professional modern dancer, a student at UC Berkeley and I have been incredibly moved by the call to action to protest the Keystone XL tar sands oil pipeline. I am willing to risk arrest, but that doesn’t seem like enough given what’s at stake, so I am organizing the No Tar Sands Caravan to DC. Are you planning on driving or do you need a ride to DC? Would you like to make it a fun, unifying and awareness building trip? Go to our website:
The No Tar Sands Caravan will get as many people to DC as possible, while increasing the visibility of the cause along the way and building unity among us protesters before we even get to DC. The caravan will leave from the west coast and take a more or less straight route through the middle of the country. Signs and banners on our cars will help spread the word and the excitement. Stopping along the way for bon-voyage events as we pick up more protesters, or holding a press conference at an intersection with the proposed pipeline in places like Lincoln, Nebraska, will send our message even further. Putting something together like this will require the coordination of people from all over the country, pulling their resources and acting together.
The exact details of the route and schedule are still in the works. They will be solidified once we receive information from you. By filling out our online form at the website, including where you are leaving from and your availability for travel, a route will begin to take shape and we will contact you with the details. You can also get in touch with us at email@example.com
I can’t wait to see people caravaning across the country to uplift the climate movement and stop the Tar Sands!
