Interview with Cindy Spoon of the Texas Tar Sands Blockade

by Aaron Lakoff

Confronting the Pipedream: Part 5

Cindy Spoon is an organizer with the Texas Tar Sands Blockade. The Tar Sands Blockade is an open invitation for people across North America to join a peaceful direct action campaign to stop the Keystone XL pipeline. They stand with people of all backgrounds who are fighting to save their homes, land and our planet from destruction by tar sands pumped by the TransCanada company. The Tar Sands Blockade is coordinating grassroots actions across Texas and Oklahoma.

About Confronting the Pipedream
Confronting the Pipedream is a grassroots radio project which seeks to unite these voices across colonial borders, and bring voices from the frontlines to the foreground. We will be releasing a series of 10-15 minute radio-quality, ready to air pieces which will take listeners to various sites along the routes of pipelines, from Wet’suwet’en territory in northern unceded British Columbia to the Great Plains Tar Sands resistance in Texas. Rather than going to the “experts” and Environmental NGO’s, Confronting the Pipedream will amplify the voices of those directly affected, and those risking everything to fight back.


If your radio station would like to air this series, please get in touch with us at
