Arkansas Spill Victims Coalesce to Stop Keystone XL, Appeal to Secretary Kerry
Remember Mayflower Coalition Travels to DC, State Department
Washington – Two Mayflower, Arkansas residents who were victims of Exxon’s Good Friday tar sands spill that coated their neighborhood in toxic tar sands are traveling to DC to appeal to Secretary Kerry to stop Keystone XL. The residents, members of the “Remember Mayflower, Arkansas” Coalition, are in DC to deliver a letter to the Secretary that asks him to come visit Mayflower and view their devastation first-hand before making a decision on Keystone XL.
The Remember Mayflower Coalition will be joined by Jane Kleeb, Executive Director of Bold Nebraska and member of the “All Risk, No Reward” Coalition.
**Residents are also available for interviews this afternoon or on Thursday morning before the press conference**
