Call Senator Susan Collins today!

 

In an effort to circumvent the Obama administration to seek approval for the Keystone XL pipeline, the U.S. Senate may vote as early as tomorrow (Nov. 18) on whether the proposed project should move forward. This is unacceptable.

 

At a time when resources should be directed toward renewable energy sources, our Congressional leaders continue to fight for the interests of the fossil fuel industry. You have fought back, and your grassroots efforts have delayed approval of KXL, but this battle is not yet won. We need your help once again.

 

Senator Susan Collins has voted twice in favor of the project. And though she admits that human activity is a primary cause of climate change, her environmental record fails to reflect that understanding.

 

Will you please take a moment to call her today and

ask that she reconsider her vote on the Keystone XL pipeline?

 

Call Susan Collins …

 

• Washington, D.C. Office (202) 224-2523

• Augusta Constituent Service Center (207) 622-8414

• Bangor Constituent Service Center (207) 945-0417

• Biddeford Constituent Service Center (207) 283-1101

• Caribou Constituent Service Center (207) 493-7873

• Lewiston Constituent Service Center (207) 784-6969

• Portland Constituent Service Center (207) 780-3575

 

… and consider saying:

 

“The people of Maine respectfully ask that you vote NO on Senate bill 2280, against approval for the Keystone XL pipeline project. We ask that you have the courage to become an environmental leader in Congress, and speak the truth about this dangerous project: Keystone XL approval isn’t a jobs bill; it will not contribute to independence from foreign oil, and it will have a detrimental environmental impact. We look to you to vote in opposition to Keystone XL and for a clean, sustainable future for the generations to come.”

 

Senator Angus King, who opposes the pipeline (and voted against it after our last rapid response phone flood), should hear from us, too. Call Senator King …

 

• Washington, D.C.: (207) 764-5124

• Scarborough: (207) 883-1588

• Augusta: (207) 622-8292

• Presque Isle: (202) 224-5344

 

… and request the following:

 

“The people of Maine thank you for your continued environmental leadership, and for opposing the Keystone XL Pipeline project. We ask that you reach across the aisle to your colleague Senator Susan Collins to request that she stand up for the interests of the state she represents, and say no to the Keystone XL pipeline.

 

Thank you for your ongoing advocacy and support, and for making these critical calls.

 

Stand with the Sioux for Indigenous Sovereignty

 

After the House of Representatives voted to approve Keystone XL on Friday, the Rosebud Sioux Tribal President said, “The Rosebud Sioux Tribe will not allow this pipeline through our lands.  We are outraged at the lack of intergovernmental cooperation. We are a sovereign nation and we are not being treated as such…..”   

 

In light of the Rosebud Sioux position regarding the KXL (see here), we stood in support of the right of tribes to exercise sovereignty and to reject dangerous fossil fuel projects that they don't believe serve their interests. For additional photos from our vigil, see here. For a separate album in support of the Rosebud Sioux, see here.
