No Tar Sands Oil

Activists take note – you can’t miss this banner if you tried.

A team of climate and Native Rights activists unveiled this banner from the US observation deck at Niagara Falls. It’s purpose was as a “welcome message to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper ahead of his first official visit to Obama to push dirty Tar Sands oil” (source).

Elsewhere, we also love the move by 25 Greenpeace activists who managed to bring Shell’s oil sands operation in  Northern Alberta to a complete standstill.

We can only hope that Harper & Obama had their eyes open.
