Six activists from Earth First! and Northern Rockies Rising Tide are occupying Gov. Brian Schweitzer’s (D-MT) office to protest the planned construction of the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline through the state. The activists “locked their arms in a mock oil pipeline made out of PVC plastic pipe.” Although Schweitzer has battled with Exxon over the Yellowstone River pipeline spill, he has continued to promote the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.

Update

Schweitzer has agreed to meet with the protesters.
