Over 1200 arrested in Keystone XL protests

Tuesday, September 06, 2011 at 9:09 am | More from The Michigan Messenger

The two weeks of planned protests against the Keystone XL pipeline ended this weekend with 1,252 people arrested outside the White House in an attempt to convince President Obama to reject a permit to greenlight the project.

The group that organized the protests, Tar Sands Action, calls the arrests phase one of a larger movement to convince the U.S. government that the pipeline would harm the environment too much to be approved. The group says it will announce phase two this week.

Tar Sands project is a slap in the face to ALL the people of North America. The oil that it will produce isn`t worth the price we will pay in environmental damage done. It is time for “We, the people” to DEMAND that the government release technology that has already been developed that will free the world from dependance on fossil fuels. Some of this technology was developed 100 years ago by Nikola Tesla and the time to stop hiding it is NOW.
