In the US, activists will encircle the White House, demanding President Obama rejects the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline.
Encircling our own miniature White House, we will stand in solidarity with US climate activists for what could be one of the biggest turning points for the tar sands battle so far.
This action builds on August's Keystone XL pipeline protests, one of the largest ever civil disobedience climate actions, resulting in over 1200 arrests in Washington DC.
If the pipeline is built, companies already have plans to ship the dirty oil to new markets including the UK and Ireland.
Stopping this pipeline would be a major win for the planet: the first step towards stifling the exponential growth of the tar sands industry.
