A short film capturing first day of two weeks of sit-ins currently underway in front of the White House in Washington DC.
Similar numbers of people are expected to peacefully protest in front of the White House every day throughout the two weeks, which is likely to result in around 2000 people being arrested simply for being there.
Just imagine how many tourists’ perfect photographs are being spoiled in those two weeks and how many photos will carry the tar sands banner. Mwa ha haaaa!
The US Government will be issuing an environmental review of the project this month, but cynics….or should I say ‘realists’, don’t think that will make a blind bit of difference. Obama will be under huuuuuuuge pressure to approve it. Oil rules, after all.
