Opponents of the Keystone XL pipeline are holding out hope the project won’t be approved, but some are preparing a plan if President Obama gives the pipeline the go-ahead.
Three activist groups have recruited 76,000 backers who are pledging to stage sit-ins to stall the project if necessary, Bloomberg reports.
Rainforest Action Network, Credo Action, and The Other 98% say they hope their call for nonviolent demonstration puts pressure on Obama to turn down the controversial pipeline. And sit-ins aren’t the only drastic measure pledged by opponents.
“If Obama approves the pipeline, I will eat my hat,” said Daniel Kessler, a spokesman for 350.org.
