Tar Sands Action Day Six: ‘Fired Up! Ready To Go!’

More than 50 additional people are expected to be arrested in front of the White House today as part of the ongoing protest to push President Obama to deny the permit for the proposed Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. Spokespeople at the protest today include a number of Gulf Coast residents, who have seen first hand the damage an oil spill can cause. Aaron Viles, the director of Healthy Gulf, is one of the leaders of the Gulf delegation to the protest. Among those arrested yesterday was Gulf activist Cherri Foytlin: “The most important thing isn’t jobs. It’s life.”
