Two critical issues are on the agenda for the week of March 16 to 23 with solidarityactions across the country. Each shows the worst of big ﬁnance capitalism – how proﬁtcomes before the planet and people. Participate!Nationwide actions against the Tar Sands
focus on the corporate proﬁteers behind theexpansion of the planet-devastating mining of the Alberta Tar Sands and the KeystoneXL pipeline which will bring tar sands crud to the Gulf of Mexico for processing andexport. We seek to stop the most destructive environmental project on Earth to preserveany hope for a livable planet.
The corporate strip-mining of our future for proﬁt will onlybe stopped by widespread direct action.Action is particularly important now because reports from this week
s meeting betweenPresident Obama and the Republicans indicate thatObama promised the Keystone XLpipeline will be approved. It will be up to the people to stop the suicidal actions of the bi-partisans in Washington, DC.
