From the Maine chapter of the Sierra Club:
Rally for a tar sands free Northeast — January 26 in Portland
Imagine how devastating an oil spill into the Connecticut River would be. Picture dirty tar sands oil pouring into Sebago Lake or Casco Bay. We’ve seen what happens when tar sands pipelines spill, and it’s not pretty. We can’t take that risk in the Northeast.
Speak out against tar sands and join us for a rally in Portland, ME on January 26. This will be a huge event to rally opposition against tar sands in the Northeast. The more people who attend the rally, the stronger the message we send.
Come join fellow Sierra Club supporters and hundreds of others from across New England!
