Olympic-Sized Fail

By mike flugennockSaturday - November 2nd, 2019Categories: environment

“Current incident estimates published by the company say that 9,120 US barrels (383,040 gallons) or ‘approximately half the size of an Olympic-sized swimming pool’ of crude oil were released into an impacted area of 2,500 square yards…”

This past week saw the latest — the latest — rupture and spill on TransCanada’s Keystone Pipeline, this time to the tune of 383,000 gallons near the town of Edinburg, North Dakota… a big ol’ Olympic-sized pool of Fail. Of course, it happened pretty much as predicted by the thousands of people who spoke up, protested, and tried to stop the pipeline from being built, and who are now designated as “terrorists” by the US Government.

Pipeline Peace Walk Begins!

By mike flugennockTuesday - July 9th, 2013Categories: Obamarama, Occupy, environment

From the Pipeline Peace Walk donations page:

This summer, Love Bomb Seed Bomb, the People’s Garden, the Harvest Collective, Permatecture Design, the Compassionate Earth Walk, Occupy the Keystone XL Pipeline and Pipeline Peace Walk will walk the length of the Keystone XL Pipeline, from the Canadian border in Montana, down to the Gulf of Mexico, in a pilgrimage to defend nature from the Oil Machine. We walk for our children, for nature, the plants and animals, and for the next seven generations of humanity…

…We will walk thousands of miles to shift our reality, and to build a better future, by demanding we depart from the old paradigm, and enter into the new. As we walk we will be visiting communities along the pipeline, lending support to their current struggles, and telling their stories.

Along the way we will be in service to communities who are resisting the Keystone XL Pipeline. We will meet up with Moccasins on the Ground in South Dakota, Farmers Unions in Kansas, Bold Nebraska in Nebraska, Great Plains Tar Sands Resistance in Oklahoma, and Tar Sands Blockade in Texas. Throughout the summer we will be traveling to be in service to these causes, and to help create links between the communities along the Keystone XL Pipeline path. At current, we are also coordinating with #Fearless Summer to create collective movement.

This is the art I created for the cover of the Pipeline Peace Walk Guide, published as an aid to the activists walking the length of the Keystone XL Pipeline. Find out more about the Pipeline Peace Walk on Farcebook here.
