President Obama has promised to veto proposed legislation approving the Keystone XL pipeline. That's great news, and a huge victory for the #NoKXL movement. Now it's time for the president to reject the pipeline once and for all.

This is a testament to the dedication and resolve of millions of grassroots activists who have for years fought to stop this pipeline, against all odds. Together this movement has marched, written letters, sat in at the White House and along the route of the pipeline, and self-organized a large-scale network ready to do whatever it takes to win a rejection on Keystone. It's an important day for the climate and for communities when the President decides to side with the people over the fossil fuel corporations who are wrecking our climate for profit.

Rainforest Action Network has been fighting the Keystone XL pipeline since 2009. With partners CREDO and the Other 98 percent, RAN organized the Keystone XL Pledge of Resistance Network, which has trained thousands of people in civil disobedience. To date, almost 100,000 people have signed the Keystone XL Pledge of Resistance, and have committed to engage in nonviolent civil disobedience to stop the pipeline.
