Tar sands oil pipelines have a history of causing destruction: tearing up land, polluting water, and causing catastrophic oil spills that take decades to clean up. There’s no safe way to transport oil, and the effects of a spill are especially devastating when it’s on Indigenous land that oil companies don’t have consent to build on.
Tar sands pipelines need big money from big banks. Some banks are already backing away from tar sands pipelines, but there’s a Dirty Dozen of twelve banks that are each still financially involved in some of these projects. If people around the world ask banks to commit to NOT fund these pipelines, we can tip the balance on these toxic projects and stop these new pipelines for good.
