Keystone Protesters Pressure Obama

Keystone XL protesters pressure Obama on climate change promise

Thousands of protesters descended on Washington, DC on President's Day weekend demanding Barack Obama shut down the Keystone XL pipeline project to show he is serious about taking action on climate change.
Organisers said a crowd of 40,000+, carrying placards in the shape of bright red stop signs, gathered at the Washington monument on a bright but bitterly cold day for the march on the White House.
They said Obama's entire presidential legacy rests on the Keystone XL, which they framed as a critical test of Obama's environmental credentials and his sweeping promises to use the next four years to protect future generations from climate change.
