The #NoKXL movement escalates and expands; the Pledge of Resistance launches asking people to pledge to engage in mass civil disobedience to stop the pipeline

In April, Lakota tribes step up efforts to fight the “black snake” across their land, and a coalition of groups (including Rainforest Action Network) delivers over one million comments opposing Keystone XL to the State Department.

Also in April, CREDO, Rainforest Action Network, and the Other 98 percent launch the Keystone XL Pledge of Resistance with a call to action asking people to commit to engage in nonviolent civil disobedience in their communities to stop Keystone XL, to show the president that approving Keystone XL would be politically unfeasible.

The launch of the Pledge of Resistance includes a 25 city training tour, which trains over 450 “action leads” to organize civil disobedience actions in their communities.
