TAR SANDS BLOC
OUR MISSION — The Tar Sands Bloc is coming together in NYC this September as a space in the march for people and communities fighting against tar sands on the front lines as well as the global movement activists working against tar sands.
We demand climate justice and call on world leaders to keep tar sands in the ground where it belongs.
Tar sands exploitation has been called “game over for the climate” by NASA climatologist James Hansen, and it is devastating communities. But everywhere, communities are fighting back, from the Indigenous resistance in the extraction sacrifice zones to the communities along pipelines routes and next to refineries and export terminals– and we’re are going to keep fighting until it’s stopped at the source.
This space is for people who support a future free from tar sands oil. The Tar Sands Bloc supports the Indigenous People’s Bloc and front line communities leading the fight against tar sands. Please join this hub for information and updates about the tar sands bloc at the People’s Climate March!
We will be marching as a contingent and will be meeting between 80th-81st Streets and Central Park West between 8-10am on Sunday the 21st.
Streets are closed to traffic beginning at 8 am and blocs are being asked to assemble by 10am. Once a block is full, people will be turned away to join a different place in the march, so people are being encouraged to arrive early to march with the Tar Sands Bloc.
Sign up with the buttons to stay in the loop!
