Tar Sands Action Protests In Washington, D.C., Arrests (PHOTOS) Day 2

Fifty more Americans were arrested today in the 2nd day of the Tar Sands Action protest.  Bill McKibben, who is considered the founder of this powerful act of civil disobedience, had a great message for us from jail: "The only thing we need is more company.  We don't need your sympathy, we need more company."

If you can, give them more company!  Sign-up here
