Join us in San Francisco to rally and march in solidarity with the huge Forward on Climate demonstration in Washington DC. Both events February 17.

Join over 50 organizations and thousands of citizens to encircle the State Department Office at One Market Plaza - Demand that the Department reject Keystone XL permit.

Why this matters - The way forward on climate is clear: President Obama must start cutting carbon from today’s biggest polluters—power plants—and stop the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline to avoid adding more carbon pollution tomorrow.

Why march now - President Obama understands the severity of the climate crisis and can lead the world to solve it, but he needs to hear from his constituents that this is a priority. Let’s march together and give the President the support he needs to move Forward on Climate!

Jean-Jaques, We’re doing this on Sunday in solidarity with the folks in Washington DC who will be protesting the same day. Don’t worry! We are planning a follow-up engagement at the State Department when the offices are open to deliver our petitions and more.

Glad to see a protest about this.

But why are we doing an action on Sunday?

The State Dept. Office will be closed. We will be protesting to an empty building. News media might not happen as they have minimal staffing on weekends. No one will be working in the area to see us. Tourists and business people staying at the Hyatt Regency Hotel across the street will be gone as Sunday is departure day.

The only advantage to a weekend is working people will be off and able to attend a demonstration.
