800,000 Say No Keystone
Far exceeding their initial goal of a half-million, over 30 progressive groups gathered over the last 24 hours more than 800,000 signatures of Americans opposed to the Keystone pipeline.

“The voice of three quarters of a million Americans is a force that the Senate will ignore only at great peril." - Michael Brune, Sierra Club Executive Director.
