Over 1200 arrested in Keystone XL protests
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.
