It’s official: President Obama just rejected Keystone XL.
To the countless 350 New England members who marched, rallied, took long bus trips to DC, and stood vigil in the winter cold: thank you.
This is OUR victory, and it shows the growing strength and power of our movement. When the campaign against Keystone XL started, many people said that the pipeline was a done deal. Now, it’s officially dead.
Over the coming months, we will build on this victory as we fight to stop new gas pipelines and other proposed fossil fuel infrastructure projects across New England and beyond. Spectra, Kinder Morgan, and other fossil fuel companies should be getting very nervous right now: Keystone XL is one of the first fossil fuel projects to be stopped by our movement, but it will not be the last.
