65 arrests at green demo
Sunday 21 August 2011
US police swooped on an environmental protest outside the White House on Saturday, arresting 65 people on the first day of two weeks of planned demonstrations against a proposed oil pipeline.
Protesters are demanding that President Barack Obama refuse to grant a permit for the planned 1,700-mile TransCanada pipeline from Canadian oilfields to refineries in Texas, running through six US states on the way.
Demonstrators hold that the project poses environmental risks and would further cement the country’s reliance on fossil fuels.
