JAN 17, 2014 – Neil Young is on a benefit tour for the campaign "Honor the Treaties", which aims to put pressure on Canada's Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Canadian government to honor the treaties they signed with the Native people of Canada, who are fighting the battle of their life right now in protecting the lands and water from tar sands development and pollution. HuffPo has a good post up with some of his Tweets and Facebook posts, and to find out more about the Honor the Treaties campaign check out their website here.
APR 2013 – To protest the Keystone XL Pipeline and Fracking, the Keystone Pipeline Kops have come together to say "Halt!" to the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline, and recorded John Prine's great classic, "Paradise", with the lyrics updated for the times. We wanted the song to connect the trips to the outdoors we had as a child, and how we came to love the outdoors and become environmental activists to protect the rivers and woodlands we love so much. Because of the inevitable oil spills and the loss of wildlife and woodlands, as well as our air and water being poisoned, this song calls for a massive protest against the Keystone XL Pipeline, against the Tar Sands development, and against the dirty practice of Fracking. Check out the song below, and sign the JTMP petition on Change.orgcalling on President Obama to stop the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline. We are looking for 100,000 signatures, which we will then present to the White House, so please sign today! Also, start or join a discussion on this issue at our JTMP Facebook Site: www.Facebook.com/JusticeThroughMusic.
