At over 200 events today -- from Alaska to Nebraska -- people are "Drawing the Line" against the Keystone XL pipeline, tar sands and other dirty energy projects. The day's events are being coordinated by the climate campaign 350.org with help from scores of partners.
The demonstrations are a sign that while President Obama considers Keystone XL's fate, opposition to the pipeline has continued to grow. Over 1,500 people have already been arrested to stop Keystone XL, and on February 17 over 40,000 people came to Washington to tell the President that Keystone XL is not in the national interest. Credo Mobile, Other 98 and Rainforest Action Network have collected pledges from over 75,000 people who are willing to risk arrest to stop the pipeline.
