Our #NoKXL Action in DC: Photos & Live Updates

(Our first peaceful civil disobedience action has begun in DC. We’ll be using this post to put up live updates from the ground and photos as they come in.)

Inspired by the news stories, photos, videos and first-person accounts coming out of DC? Want to take peaceful civil disobedience if necessary to stop the KXL (Keystone XL) Pipeline? Take the pledge and join us NOW.

You can see even more photos from the action at our Flickr gallery, here.
