(Washington, DC) -- Hundreds of people protesting the Keystone XL pipeline are under arrest in Washington, DC. Some of the demonstrators used plastic ties to fasten themselves to the White House fences and others held signs reading, "There is no Planet B." Another group of protesters wore white jumpsuits splattered with blank ink and staged a mock oil spill on Pennsylvania Avenue. It's estimated there were about one-thousand protesters calling for President Obama to reject the controversial oil pipeline. Organizers of the protest say almost 400 people were arrested.
