"When you pick a fight you've got to stick around to see it finished.
Together the climate movement picked a fight over the Keystone Pipeline two years ago. It was a little fight at first, then 1200 people went to jail, followed by 15,000 that surrounded the White House, and 40,000 that returned this February. Countless more have marched, testified, picketed, and done the work of democracy. Now it's a big fight -- and we have a real chance of a win.
Not a guarantee, of course, and there will be more fights to come even if we do, not least of all on many other tar sands projects. But that's better than where we started, and we can increase the odds of a win this weekend. All across America people are turning out to Draw the Line on Keystone XL, in more than 200 rallies coast-to-coast. (I'll be in Seattle myself)."
