Trump KXL DAPL Protest 14

Washington DC, The White House, the evening of January 24, 2017. Around a thousand climate justice activists and supporters gathered on Pennsylvania Avenue to protest two memorandums signed by President Trump this morning essentially reauthorizing the previously rejected KXL and DAPL pipeline projects. The KXL memorandum invited TransCanada to re-apply with the promise of a speedy approval with no input from environmental agencies. The DAPL memorandum advises the Army Corp Of Engineers that the project is in our "national interest" and that the environmental review placed on it by Obama should be revoked. After a rally with speeches around a hundred or so folks marched noisily to Trump's Heartbreak Hotel for a secondary rally and 'die in'.
