NEWS BRIEF: NO KXL! – XL Dissent
On Sunday, March 2, 2014, the youthful group “XL Dissent” rallied, marched and then nearly 400 participated in a Civil Disobedience Action at the front fence of the White House at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C. They used plastic cuffs to tie themselves to the main gates and continued chanting and singing to President Obama as they were being arrested about stopping the Keystone XL Pipeline that is being planned to be built from Canada through the middle of the US to the Gulf of Mexico. Individually and as a group they stated that they didn’t vote for this nor do they want the pipeline. President Obama has received recently the final study he asked for concerning the need and safety for this long pipeline and will be making his decision. These youthful demonstrators have given their answer by their actions.
