From 350 Colorado:

Next Sunday, Nov. 6th over 4,000 people are participating in a Tar Sands Action protest encircling the White House and urging President Obama to reject the dirtiest project on earth – the Keystone XL Tar Sands Oil Pipeline – and live up to his promise to “free us from the tyranny of oil”. In doing so, we want to remind him of the power of the movement that he rode to the White House in 2008.

In Denver, we will march in solidarity from the Occupy Denver event at the Denver Federal Reserve Building at 1020 16th Street (Occupy Denver will move locations for Veterans Parade activities at Civic Center Park) to rally at The World Trade Center (1625 Broadway) – office location of the Canadian Consul, which has been lobbying hard for the pipeline.

Please join us! Event schedule:

• 11am-12noon: Occupy Denver Rally and Tar Sands Action sign making at the Federal Reserve Building (1020 16th St.). Meet at the corner of 16th and Curtis to help make signs.

• 12noon-1pm: March with Occupy Denver by banks and the World Trade Center. Stop to rally in solidarity outside the Canadian Consul office at the World Trade Center (1625 Broadway – on 16th St. Mall).

• Tar Sands Action Teach-in: We’re not sure what time we’ll arrive at the World Trade Center, but we anticipate rallying there for about 10-15 minutes. We’ll have great speakers from the American Indian Movement and Indigenous Resistance to the Tar Sands Denver and more. Then we’ll offer a 20-minute Tar Sands Action Teach-in on site for anyone wanting to learn more and get active.

Please invite your friends! Want to volunteer? Email micah@350.org. To learn more, visit http://tarsandsaction.org/.
