Desmond Tutu: Opposition to pipelines is a moral choice
This is why I have become more outspoken in support of citizen-led
strategies that will force governments and corporations to move away
from our dependence upon fossil fuels and towards safer and cleaner
energies that can protect people and our planet.
I stand in solidarity with communities across Canada and the United States that are
opposing the proposed oil sands pipelines. The struggle of citizens
against the pipelines puts them on the front lines of one of the most
important struggles in North America today: stopping the reckless
expansion of the oil sands.
