'Funeral for Our Future': 26 Arrested Blockading TransCanada Office. Escalating resistance to Keystone XL: 'If President Obama will not reject the pipeline, we will stop it ourselves' Reposted from Common Dreams. By Common Dreams staff writer Jon Queally.

Climate activists in Westborough, Massachusetts were being arrested on Monday after blockading the entrance to corporate offices of the TransCanada corporation, the Canandian tar sands pipeline company hoping to receive approval for its controversial Keystone XL project. Calling it a "Funeral for Our Future" and carrying a coffin emblazoned with the words 'Our Future' the protesters held flowers and sang an elegy as they marched in procession. As supporters gathered outside - chanting and singing songs in unison—dozens of protesters were inside where they refused to move, despite warnings from local police.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — This morning, 48 environmental, civil rights, and community leaders from across the country joined together for a historic display of civil disobedience at the White House where they demanded that President Obama deny the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline and address the climate crisis.

The protest was particularly significant for the Sierra Club: It is the first time in the 120 year history of the organisation that it has endorsed civil disobedience, signifying the growing concern with the climate crisis and the necessity for action.
