BAN TAR SANDS IN MAINE
I went down to South Portland yesterday to support the exciting campaign in that city to pass a referendum outlawing a Tar Sands pipeline scheduled to carry that dirty fossil fuel product into their port. The election will be held on November 5.
About 200 folks turned out to work the major intersections in South Portland....if you want to reach the American people then stand on a busy street and they will drive by.
This campaign has effectively taken the raging national issue and found a way to bring it home to the local community. That is good organizing.
