Read this report from the Toronto Star on the arrest of Canadian activist and author Naomi Klein in Washington, DC at the protest over the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline from the Alberta Tar Sands to refineries on the US Gulf Coast.
Klein was arrested alongside fellow Canadian Gitz Deranger, from the
Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation, and several American native leaders on
Day 13 of the protest. “I have seen the devastation of our environment and people’s health
with increased cancer deaths,” Deranger said before his arrest. “If
Obama approves this pipeline, it would only lead to more of our people
needlessly dying.” (Sept. 2, 2011)
