Tarsands Keystone XL Pipeline Protest

On November 6, 2011, thousands of people gathered outside the White House to protest the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline that would go from the Tarsands in Alberta, Canada to the Gulf of Mexico. Among those who participated were current and former members of WCL's Environmental Law Society and Professor Bill Snape, who is also Senior Counsel at the Center for Biological Diversity.
