LIVE: Watch As Students Stage Die-In, Chain Themselves To White House Fence Over XL Pipeline

A Keystone XL pipeline demonstration taking place right now includes hundreds of students chaining and tying themselves to the White House fence, and staging a die-in in the street.

God bless these kids who care enough to put their butts in jail to draw attention to global warming and the dangers to climate represented by the Keystone XL pipeline. From the website:

XL Dissent is an event for young people to raise our voices in solidarity with communities most impacted by extreme energy. These include Indigenous First Nations in Alberta resisting tar sands extraction, people along the pipeline route opposing TransCanada’s use of eminent domain, and those near major refineries in Texas fighting environmental racism. Approval of the pipeline would ensure that our generation will also experience environmental devastation. We are coming together to register our dissent.

Join us in Washington DC March 1-2 to tell President Obama to reject the northern leg of Keystone XL and protect us from a future defined by climate chaos.

Can you help us out?
