We just blockaded a Line 9 construction site in Etobicoke, Toronto.
The blockade is taking place at Rexdale Blvd. and Kipling Ave. where the Enbridge is doing an â€œintegrity digâ€ on Line 9.
These digs, which are required before Enbridge can bring the reversed Line 9 into operation, involve digging up and repairing SOME of the over 12,000 anomalies in the pipeline. But we know that Enbridge has no integrity, and that Line 9 reversal is an unjust and dangerous project.
Today we are taking a stand to say NO to Line 9 and tar sands development. Our collective future has been put at risk by the reckless greed of corporate profiteers. It is our responsibility to combat further destructive projects that push many people and the planet towards imminent danger. For us, right now, that includes saying NO to Tar Sands destruction.
Please come join us on site (you will find directions at the bottom of this email). If you canâ€™t make it to Etobicoke today, please consider sharing updates from our Facebook page and Twitter account and join our email list for future action alerts.
Together we can say no to Line 9, no to tar sands, no to industrial genocide, and no to climate criminals. Take action wherever you can.
If you don't know about the Tar Sands, take 10 minutes to watch this video. It will be worth it.
