Bringing XL dissent to Washington DC

Oorganizers of a student/youth-led demonstration are hoping their ‘XL Dissen’t protest in Washington, D.C. on March 2 will be one of the largest actions so far against the Keystone XL pipeline project that would transport tar sands from Canada to the Gulf Coast of the U.S. Some 2,000 to 3,000 people will travel from around the country to march from Georgetown University to the White House, according to the predictions of organizers…

As Peter Rothberg writes in the Nation, “The sit-in is expected to be the largest act of civil disobedience by young people in the recent history of the environmental movement, and …is meant to send a clear signal to President Obama that the base that helped elect him sees Keystone XL as a decision that will define his entire legacy.”
