As the president meets with House Democrats, activists will urge them to reject Keystone XL and take meaningful action on climate
 
Tomorrow, as President Obama visits Philadelphia to meet with House Democrats and plan their Congressional agenda, hundreds of climate change activists are planning to gather outside the meeting to urge him to veto any bill forcing approval of the Keystone XL pipeline. Organizing the protest is 350 Philadelphia, a local division of the global climate movement 350.org
Here's more information from 350.org:
As the Administration’s decision on the controversial Keystone XL tar sands pipeline approaches, the activists plan to continue urging the President to reject the pipeline permit outright, on the grounds that the pipeline would threaten the climate and American natural resources.
 
The group will also urge House Democrats to support policies that protect the climate and help the United States transition to clean, renewable energy. Additionally, this coalition acknowledges the broader social and economic issues that underlie environmental injustice, and urge their political leadership to support the creation of living wage jobs, investments in education, and subsidies for sustainable infrastructure improvements.
