Keystone XL Dissent Protests Planned for Washington

HeadlineFeb 28, 2014

Opponents of the Keystone XL pipeline are gearing up for a series of protests known as “XL Dissent” in Washington this weekend. More than 1,000 students and youth will march from Georgetown University to the White House. Some 300 of the participants are expected to risk arrest in a sit-in outside the gates. Organizers say it will likely be the largest youth sit-in on the environment in a generation.
