In front of the White House, in the late summer of 2011, 1252 people were arrested protesting the proposed Keystone XL pipeline which would bring a low grade oil from the tar sands of Alberta, Canada 2000 miles to the Gulf of Mexico. This was the biggest civil disobedience action this century in the US. After a rally concluding this two week action, 1200 people dressed in black, formed a human pipeline from the White House to the Chamber of Commerce building . . . and then deconstructed it in a colorful way, believing that to accomplish something as monumental as stopping the tar sands pipeline, it helps to do it in art first!
