The first day of the Tar Sands Action showed how beautiful and powerful a determined group of climate activists can be. 75 folks risked arrest at the White House to tell President Obama to reject a permit for the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, after participating in a nonviolence training the night before. Bill McKibben, Gus Speth and Lt. Dan Choi led the group in the first day of what will be a two week long daily protest at the White House.
