Today March 10th, more than 20 people were arrested for blocking an entrance to the William J. Green Federal Building, near Independence Mall, in Philadelphia in a civil disobedience action organized by Earth Quaker Action Team to protest the Keystone XL pipeline. The activists brought brooms, to “sweep out” the corruption of the State Department’s Final Environmental Impact Statement, underwritten by a firm with close ties to TransCanada and the oil industry.
Among the supporters was a group of New Yorkers, including volunteers from United for Action, who went to Philadelphia to stand in solidarity with the protesters.
