We're Going to DC to Oppose the Keystone XL Pipeline

We have been invited to join the Cowboy Indian Alliance (CIA), a group of tribal communities, ranchers and farmers from along the Keystone XL pipeline route in what could be a final protest against this extra-large tar sands pipeline.

350 Mainers have said that they want to be part of the action. Please see this link for additional details related to the events of (and leading up to) the 26th. 

Regarding transportation: at this point, we have filled the only van available for 350 Maine. There is also the option of connecting with 350 Massachusetts regarding options they are investigating here. Alternatively, individuals may schedule their own transportation, including via Megabus or other public transportation options (Concord Trailways Maine-Boston; Peter Pan/Greyhound). The Reject and Protect site also identifies options via a national Ride Board. Though pretty pricey, the Amtrak train out of Boston is also an option.
