Keystone opponents vow civil disobedience, vigils starting Monday
Published February 01, 2014 FoxNews.com
Environmentalists and other opponents of the Keystone XL Pipeline are ramping up their opposition to the project following the release Friday of a largely favorable State Department report -- vowing to hold vigils, jump into the November elections and even perform acts of civil disobedience.
The report raising no major environmental concerns bolster the hopes of the oil industry, some union groups, congressional Republicans and others that President Obama will soon approve the $7 billion project, after a roughly five year wait.
They say the Canada-to-Texas pipeline will create tens of thousands of jobs and make the United States less dependent on foreign oil.
However, within hour of the release of the report, opponents were pressing forward with a lawsuit to challenge the project, public protests and an effort to inject the issue into this falls elections.
Among the critics is a coalition of landowners and environmentalists that says there is still cause for denying a federal permit.
And farmers and ranchers in Nebraska are planning to run for seats on a state board that regulates power stations that are needed along the projects route.
Meanwhile, national activists say they have recruited more than 75,000 volunteers willing to participate in civil disobedience, should Obama approve the project.

Some days, you’re the claw hammer. Some days, you’re the thick skull of a tree-hugging stinking hippie.
Counter-protesters with PA systems blaring Rush Limbaugh at 100dB.
-——Folks, it’s just a pipeline.......-—
No, that is incorrect
The Keystone is a line the wackos have drawn in the sand...... .It will not be crossed at any cost
Moonbats will fight to the death to prevent it
"May I suggest you use your baton, Officer?"
I think the affected States should get together and just go through and build the thing and just tell the Feds and greenies to STFU.
I always wonder, from whom do these slobs get the money to support themselves with food and shelter?
Dirty hippies who live off of public grant money and too lazy to work. Run em up a tree and let’s get to work!
They want to keep this country pristine but think it’s okay to pollute other countries.
Somebody needs to take a few of these sniveling punks to the woodshed.
I have come to believe there power is slipping away. They need a major win badly
NIMBY has been replaced by BANANA.
Not going to happen...the union thugs they normally bus in and get paid to protest are pissed they are getting screwed by Obamacare...
George Soros! He backs these foreign creeps! They need to be made an endangered species and buried on the back forty!
Can they be for something a bit more useful? What I really have in mind is using them as plug fodder for when the new pipeline needs to be flushed of construction debris.
What a load of horse pucky. They may have 75K soccer moms, moonbat shoppers, and greenies, that signed a petition or something, but there is no way there are 75K people willing to engage in civil disobedience because of a pipeline.
Moonbats will fight to the death to prevent it....
That would sure be a pity if they went and committed suicide like that.....a dirty rotten shame......
