The fight against the muthafuckin tar sands has intensified in the US Empire. Greedy land destroyers want to bleed the earth out of the last bits of oils, that are encrusted in the soil, this time in Utah. But the Muthafuckin resistance was there to greet the corporate death machine and to say “You shall not pass!” On the day of the action, US Oil Sands stock dropped 13%

From Peaceful Uprisings:

Dozens of individuals peacefully disrupted road construction and stopped operations today at the site of a proposed tar sands mine in the Bookcliffs range of southeastern Utah. Earlier this morning, Utahns joined members of indigenous tribes from the Four Corners region and allies from across the country for a water ceremony inside the mine site on the East Tavaputs Plateau. Following the ceremony, a group continued to stop work at the mine site while others halted road construction, surrounding heavy machinery with banners reading “Respect Existence or Expect Existence” and “Tar Sands Wrecks Lands”.
