Keystone opponents pledge sit-ins if pipeline approved
- Foes of the Keystone XL pipeline (TRP) say they will launch an America-wide sit-in should the U.S. State Department recommend Pres. Obama approve the project.
- Activist groups say they have convinced ~76K volunteers to sign a "pledge to resistance," joining anti-nuclear protesters and others who have used sit-ins and other forms of non-violent protest over the years to bring publicity.
- Even some pipeline supporters say the network of activists pushing Obama to block Keystone appear to be having an impact.
