President Obama is coming to San Francisco to have a $7500 a plate lunch with 200 high-dollar donors.
We’re going to greet him with a big rally outside his fundraiser to send an important message:
It’s time for the change he promised us: President Obama must stop the Keystone XL Pipeline.
This is a great opportunity to deliver this important message directly to President Obama, and to his high-dollar donors who are in a unique position to talk to the president about this issue.
Here are the details:
What: President Obama “Yes you can Stop Keystone XL” rally.
Where: 3rd St. and Howard St., across from the W Hotel
When: Tuesday, October 25th 11:30 am
Why: Because Keystone XL isn’t CHANGE!
How appropriate that President Obama is having this fundraiser at the W Hotel.
Because if he approves the Keystone XL Pipeline it’s “W.” — not candidate Obama circa 2008 — that the President will be channeling.
The Keystone XL Pipeline — a desperate attempt to maintain our disastrous reliance on fossil fuels that will be “essentially game over” for the climate — is exactly what President Obama ran against in 2008.
The corruption and conflict of interest that we’ve seen in the State Department’s handling of the review process, are exactly the type of insider, closed-door cronyism and corruption that President Obama said we could all change.
That’s why so many of us spent so much time and money to work for his campaign in 2008.
It’s no secret that the Bay Area and Northern California were a huge sources of grassroots donations and energy for the campaign — with huge numbers of phone calls to swing states, huge numbers of people traveling to Nevada, Colorado — even Florida! — to get out the vote. And a whole lot of money.
Now President Obama is coming to the Bay, and we need to send this message to him, and his donors, loud and clear: “We want the change you promised us. You need to seize this opportunity for real leadership on energy and climate and reject the Keystone XL Pipeline.”
Thank you for continuing to fight for change and against the Keystone XL Pipeline.
