For Immediate Release
Thousands to March Sunday at White House for Climate Solutions, Against Foreign Tar Sands and Keystone XL Tar Sands Pipeline
Schedule of events:
1-3PM 350.org’s Do the Math event at the Warner Theater
3-3:15PM Marchers will assemble at Freedom Plaza
3:15-4 Marchers will circle the White House
4:30 Speaker and music.
Visuals: Marchers will carry a 500 foot “oil pipeline”, colorful banners, and over 500 signs containing quotes from President Obama about climate change. Photographers will be able to get amazing shots of the marchers together with the White House.
Why: With the election freshly behind him, President Obama can now fulfill his promises to tackle the climate crisis. If he's serious about tackling climate change, the President must reject the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline once and for all. The pipeline would unlock so much carbon pollution that the President’s own top climate scientist, Dr. James Hansen, said that if it were built it would be “game over” for the climate.
