Joe Uehlein, a Labor Movement Leader, and his daughter came to support the Tar Sands Action on August 24th, 2011. Joe told organizers of the action that he remembered when his dad brought him to a picket line when he was just a kid and how powerful that experience was. Joe and his daughter sat in with participants of the action until the first warning that police were about to start making arrests was called.

From August 20th-September 3rd, hundreds of people are sitting-in at the White House to tell President Obama to reject the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. Visit for more details.
