These are just a few of the photos from actions around the U.S. and Canada yesterday, in support of the Tar Sands Blockade efforts. There are more, along with some video, at the link below.
What an incredible day of action! Over 100 people in Nacogdoches, Texas rallied to defend their homes and protect their water from toxic tar sands. Despite brutal police repression, we will not be intimidated and continue to resist TransCanada’s bullying of our friends and neighbors. We are inspired by the over 40 communities that rallied across the country and the world against tar sands and deadly resource extraction everywhere. … check our Flikr for more photos.
