Tuesday, July 24, 2012 -- 6:00pm until 7:00pm in EDT
- Join us at the lighthouse in Bug Light Park in South Portland for a rally in opposition to pumping dirty tar sands oil thorugh Maine and in to Casco Bay! Please come dressed in all black for a "human oil spill".
On July 25, 2012, 840,000 gallons of tar sands crude spilled in to the Kalamazoo River in Michigan devastating the environment and economy. We cannot let this happen in Maine.
The Portland-Montreal Pipeline currently pumps conventional crude oil from tanker ships in Casco Bay north to Qubec. Now, Enbridge is considering to reverse the flow of the pipeline; to start pumping tar sands oil from Quebec to Casco Bay. A tar sands oil spill in Casco Bay would devastate Portland working waterfront. Join us for a rally and protest against pumping tar sands through Maine!
