Wesleyan Students Protest the Keystone XL Tar Sands Pipeline in DC

Hey, Obama, we don't want no climate drama!

5:00 AM Sunday morning, more than 20 Wesleyan students boarded a bus to Washington, D.C. to join 12,000 climate activists in protesting the Keystone XL Pipeline. Obama will soon have to make the decision whether or not to sign off on the pipeline, which will bring crude oil from the tar sands of Alberta across the U.S. to the Gulf Coast where it will be refined and then exported to Europe and Latin America. We went to show him that there is political might against the pipeline and he needs to just say no.
