Activists Risk Arrest at State Department in Washington, D.C. in Protest of Keystone XL
Sixty activists risked arrest today outside the State Department building in Washington, D.C. during a sit-in and protest over the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline. Two hundred people were in attendance at today's event, including protesters who rallied in support of those risking arrest.

The sit-in is the second act of civil disobedience that CREDO, Rainforest Action Network and the Other 98% have organized to maintain pressure on the president to keep his promise to fight climate change by rejecting the Keystone XL pipeline.
