350 Santa Cruz Sponsors Local Vigil to Protest Keystone XL Oil Pipeline
In a period of 72 hours beginning on Friday afternoon, people across the country stepped up to go the extra mile to stop Keystone XL. Over 200 events were planned from coast to coast for Monday evening, February 3rd; more were listed every hour.
Every one of those actions intended to send the same message: it’s time for President Obama to be a climate champion, not the pipeline president, and reject Keystone XL. Concerned citizens stood out on the streets across the nation, many braving chillier conditions than in Santa Cruz, California, where a local vigil was held.
