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?

Veld donates money to farm animals and also serves them

Lest we be confused that their giant V logo stands for anything other than Veld.

Trading beef for beans is not a solution, veganism is

Please do substitute beef for beans, but also have tofu instead of turkey, carrots instead of chicken, and I think you see where I’m going.

Guys, extortion isn’t an effective form of vegan advocacy

Assuming we can extort people into respecting the lives of others makes no sense.
