Tar Sands Action said on Monday, Aug. 22, 2011:
"The sit-in at the White House will continue tomorrow morning with 50 more Americans and Canadians risking arrest to protect their air, water, and climate. Over 2,000 people have registered to take part in the sit-in, which will continue every day until September 3.
Among those planning on being arrested tomorrow are film-star Margot Kidder, who played Lois Lane in four Superman movies, and actress Tantoo Cardinal, an iconic Cree actress who appeared in Dances with Wolves, Legends of the Fall, Smoke Signals and more. Cardinal, who was born in Ft. McMurray, Alberta, the capitol of the tar sands, was made made a Member of the Order of Canada in 2009."

Four of us (Joan Kresich, Margie Kidder, Margarita McLarty and Linda Kenoyer) are traveling to Washington DC this Sunday to take part in the wave of sit-ins at the White House to put pressure on the President to deny TransCanada a permit to build the massive, dangerous Keystone XL Pipeline to move tar sands oil from Alberta to the Texas Gulf Coast.
