|Keystone pipeline spilled about 97,000 barrels (410,340 million gallons) of oil near Amherst, S.D.|
We’ve stopped this pipeline before, and we’ll stop it again. Right now our best opportunity to stand in solidarity with Indigenous communities and stop KXL is for thousands of us to submit a public comment to the state department calling out Trump’s latest sham environmental review of this project before the deadline in 8 days.
Tell the Trump Administration they won’t get away with this sham review: No Keystone XL.
The law requires that these comments are tallied, analyzed, and considered in the final environmental review. We can make our voices opposing this pipeline heard if we have too many signatures for them to ignore.
In August, a federal judge ruled that the federal review of the pipeline was inadequate – so the Trump Administration came back just 37 days later with another rushed job. The Trump Administration's State Department published another hastily-produced "Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS)" on Keystone XL that concludes the pipeline would have only "minor" impacts to our land, water, endangered species and Native American sacred sites in Nebraska like the Ponca Trail of Tears. But just last year, the Keystone 1 pipeline spilled more than 200,000 gallons of dirty oil in South Dakota.
We can't let the Trump administration re-write the facts about the harm Keystone XL would do to the climate and communities. Submit a comment now.
There are only 8 days left before the deadline. This fight is about to ramp up, but we’re ready. There are three active lawsuits, 17,000+ people ready to take peaceful action in solidarity with Indigenous communities on the route if called upon, and a strong coalition led by Indigenous leaders that’s prepared to take on whatever comes.
