Work 4 Peace,Hold All Life Sacred,Eliminate Violence! This is my often neglected blog mostly about my travels across country in my mobile billboard truck as I attempt to engage in dialogue with people in hopes to wake us up and inspire action to change our country and communities and selves. And it is froth with my opinions, insights, analyses toward that end of holding all life sacred, dismantling the empire and eliminating violence while creating the society and life we want

Tar Sands protest: where o where can you be?

I am still unable to rouse the Tar Sands protestors to find out where to join them. I have tried emailing and posting to the website. I got a weird email back asking if I've signed up at the website - where do they think I got the email from?

I originally read the early reports saying they were in Livingston Tx, which is about 80 miles north of Houston – but Democracy Now & other newspaper articles, are now saying the blockade is in Winnsboro, which is outside of Dallas.

I’m peeved, as I could/would have come thru Dallas, if Livingston was not mentioned originally. It’s over 250 miles from Houston, where I’m dropping Jess off, to Winnsboro. I would only have enough veggie oil to just barely get there.

After I drop Jess & her stuff off in Houston, I'll be about 250 miles from my veggie oil guy in Louisiana. If I head north, I’ll be over 500 miles from him, which means at least 50 gallons of diesel – not just cost prohibitive but how can I justify protesting a crude oil pipe line if I’m going to be using so much diesel?

I’ll drop Jess off, head to Louisiana to fill up with veggie oil and continue my trip – and I’ll plan on joining the protest on my return in December.
