Our participation in the Global Climate March leading up to the Paris Climate Summit will take the form of a demonstration calling for the US to Keep Fossil Fuels in the Ground . We will stand on the public sidewalk at the Northwest corner of the intersection of Randall Road and Bowes Road in Elgin, from 1 PM till 2 PM holding banners and signs with that and related messages. That’s at 990 South Randall Road. We will make ourselves visible to passing motorists on that busy corner.
On Monday, Nov. 2nd Indigenous leaders, students, and concerned citizens are taking to the streets in Duluth to stop Enbridge’s pipeline invasion. We are demanding Enbridge do full consultation with tribes impacted by their proposed pipeline expansion plans & move forward with a full environmental review.
WHAT WE NEED:
- Message amplification – retweets and shares on the day of the action!
- Digital recruitment — spreading the word in the lead up to turn people out!

Fox Valley Citizens for Peace and Justice, Elgin Green Groups, and the Unitarian Universalist Church of Elgin rallied against the Keystone XL Pipeline. on Jan. 13, 2014
The House of Representatives passed it last week. The Senate may pass it next week or two. We hope that President Obama will veto it. By holding this rally, we told ALL our elected officials that we will not quietly accept this destructive action on their part.
The Keystone XL pipeline is a threat to our whole ecosystem. Here is why
