Organize against the Tar Sands? From here?
The Environmental Assessment for the Kearl Oil Sands Project shipments just came out. Now is the time to jump on organizing around this issue. There are a few things in place already, and we’ve had some talks with regional and local organizers along the shipment path, lawyers, etc. Now it the time to start building a strong local opposition to this project.
If you don’t know, Exxon Mobile, through a subsidiary called Imperial Oil, is developing yet another devastating Tar Sands mine in northern Alberta. They are bringing giant trucks carrying equipment for the project through Missoula this fall. This issue not only involves our state and country subsidizing the work of a giant exploitative corporation, but also our country remaining complacent through the expansion of what some have called the most destructive project in the world. This shipment route through Idaho and western Montana is one of the few opportunities for local communities to take on the international issue of the Tar Sands from our side of the border. Let’s show ‘em what we got.
There is more information on our website , if you care to peruse it before coming to—-
