Kicking off this new year, networks of Occupy, The Tar Sands Blockage and other folks are mobilizing against Keystone XL Pipeline construction in Southeast Texas beginning this week! This five day action includes 3 days of training leading up to the big event. The trainings and events are open and include roles for everyone ready to defend our homes from toxic tar sands. There are various ways to get down there so please register and join the action!

Also – please remember we are here to support you. Send us your events and announcements!

Happy New Year!

InterOccupy is committed to upholding clear channels of communication for the movement.  We don't create or own any of the newsletter content; we simply deliver the information that comes to us via the newswire and coordination Hubs on InterOccupy.net.
