It's deja vu all over again: Republicans in Congress have vowed to pass a bill forcing the approval of the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline within the next few weeks. If they succeed, the bill will land on Obama's desk -- and he'll have to choose whether to veto it or allow the pipeline to go forward. We're mobilizing now to make sure that Obama makes the right choice. One thing is for sure: we're ready to keep fighting Keystone XL and the tar sands for as long as it takes!
