Michigan Coalition Against Tar Sands (MI CATS) successfully shut down construction of the Enbridge Tar Sands pipeline 6B expansion project for most of the day yesterday. Arriving before Enbridge employees working on pipeline 6B expansion, more than 40 Michiganders came to oppose the infamous corporation’s flagrant expansion of the very same pipeline that spilled out into the Kalamazoo River only three years ago.  That spill was over 1.1 million gallons of toxic tar sands, the largest on-shore “oil” spill in US history.  After around a dozen arrests, there are now 5 blockaders still in Ingham County Jail. Please help out our friends in Michigan with bail support: https://www.wepay.com/donations/post-action-camp-bail-support Read more about this important action in Michigan: http://www.michigancats.org/activists-block-tar-sands-pipeline/ This comes a few weeks after Chris Wahmhoff skateboarded into the same Enbridge pipeline to stop the expansion of tar sands: http://www.addictinginfo.org/2013/07/14/why-i-spent-my-35th-birthday-in-an-enbridge-pipeline-exclusive-interview-with-chris-wahmhoff-part-1/

Our friends go to jail. A lot. If you want to help ‘em out, it’d be awesome.
