Join us to tell President Obama that fossil fuel pipelines are destroying our lives, our health and life on this planet we share.

5:45 PM - Begin March
6:30 PM - Rally outside Waldorf Astoria on Park Ave & 49th St
In his Inaugural Address just a few months ago, President Obama promised “We will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations.”
Come tell President Obama in no uncertain terms that we must move away from fossil fuels.
Hurricane Sandy brought Climate Change home to our own backyards and front stoops. Now, New Yorkers have united against the Spectra Pipeline, Rockaway Pipeline, and the Keystone XL Pipeline.
We will remind President Obama that fracked gas and tar sands are not renewable energy.
We push for the Federal government to invest in offshore wind and solar powered rooftops that are ready to be implemented but lack the funding that is given to a fossil fuel industry that continues to kill our future.
Add your voice to the communities declaring together: natural gas and tar sands oil are not solutions for a sustainable future.
We ask you to join us if you stand united against pipelines, against fracking, and for Presidential courage on climate change.
Let's unite against these pipelines and move our country forward on climate!
