Want to know what a movement looks like? Look no further than the Tar Sands Action which kicked off this weekend.
The powerful start to this two-week action saw more than 150 people stand up and face arrest over the last three days to demand President Obama reject the Keystone XL pipeline.
On Saturday night, protest organizer Bill McKibben sent a message from jail: “The only thing we need in here is more company. We don’t need your sympathy, we need your company.” It’s not too late to join the action, sign up here: http://www.tarsandsaction.org/youth-sign-up/
