36 People Risk Arrest at State Department Office in Boston Protesting Keystone XL Pipeline
Thirty-six people risked arrest today while staging a peaceful sit-in at the State Department’s office in Secretary Kerry's hometown of Boston in opposition to the controversial Keystone XL pipeline. More than 200 supporters also rallied at Monday’s event in support of those risking arrest.

The sit-in is part of a series of civil disobedience actions organized by CREDO, Rainforest Action Network and the Other 98% to maintain pressure on President Obama and the State Department to reject Keystone XL, a giant oil pipeline that would carry some of the dirtiest oil on the planet through America soil to be shipped to China.
