Alec Baldwin has joined the growing number of celebs who are protesting the Keystone XL Pipeline. Mark Ruffalo, Daryl Hannah, Robert Redford and Ian Somerhalder have all publicly spoken out against the building of the pipeline, which would stretch across the country to transport oil from Canada to refineries in Texas.

Now Baldwin is asking the Occupy Wall Street protestors to Occupy Pipeline as well, turning their fight against corporate greed to green issues.

Keystone Pipeline is headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska, and Baldwin wants protestors to head there to stage a sit-in, much like the one that occurred in front of the White House in August. He sent out of pair of tweets on Wednesday, asking followers to “Occupy Keystone XL Pipeline” and informing them that “Keystone Pipeline is HQ’ed in Omaha.”

He also linked to a NYTimes article about the project, which outlines TransCanada’s (the pipeline’s owner) threats against American property owners to use eminent domain in order to obtain the land for the pipeline.

The actor has previously expressed his support for Occupy Wall Street by visiting protestors in NYC’s Zuccotti Park. Maybe his actions there will lend support to his future mayoral run?

    Please! Someone…EVERYONE…help us. Common sense isn’t as common here in Nebraska as it should be. It’s hard to be so blue in such a red state!

    Occupy Omaha is growing strong.

    We had around 1,000 protesters in our first march.

    Here is a video about Occupy Omaha.

    common sense? how about instead on listening to ACTORS you get your information from economists, engineers, or political analysis… You need oil. period. Any short term solutions- Saudi Arabia or any gulf state for that matter, or Russian oil? I honestly don’t get it….offer an viably alternative solution to America’s oil needs if you dont wants oil form Canada.
