U.S.: Tens of thousands march against Keystone XL tar sands pipeline

DC Indymedia reported :
On the 17th of February, the "Forward on Climate" march and rally against TransCanada's racist, earth-destroying Keystone XL tar sands pipeline took place while President Obama went golfing with Big Oil in Florida. It was the largest protest I have seen in several years, with the Tar Sands Blockade website claiming a turnout of 50,000 people.

From the arrival of leading elements of the march back at the Washington Monument to the arrival of the last element seemed to be in excess of an hour. One report said the march, which crammed the road from curb to curb, was strung out over a mile long.
