On Saturday, May 17, Kansas City will join communities around the country to ask President Obama and local officials to reject the Keystone XL pipeline, offshore drilling, and other dirty fuel projects that threaten our communities and destabilize our climate.
Here in Kansas City, folks will stand together to oppose not only the tar sands and other forms of extreme energy but will reject Big Oil’s pollution of democracy by ritually cleansing Uncle Sam before marching through the Plaza to the Brush Creek Pedestrian Bridge to take our photo linking hands.

John Kurmann will be on the program to bring us up to date on this action.
This National Day of Action is being jointly organized by the Tar Sands Coalition and Hands Across the Sand / Hands Across the Land. Hands, founded in 2010, grew into an international movement after the BP oil disaster in April of that year. People came together to join hands, forming symbolic barriers against spilled oil and the impact of other forms of extreme energy. The local event is organized by 350KC (350KC.org).
Also, Craig Volland shares his concerns about mercury in our environment.  See Craig’s Powerpoint below
