Over seventy people arrested today in front of the White House for defending land and life:

The event is powered by a simmering movement that includes scientists, celebrities, and environmental activists. Jason Box, a climate scientist, is taking part. He has said: “I couldn’t maintain my self-respect if I didn’t go”. He will take part in a three-day block of activism toward the end of the event run. Activists have signed up for scheduled stays at the protest, of which Bill McKibben said: “Our currency for these two weeks is our bodies, our spirit and our creativity.” He admitted a willingness to endure arrest for this cause.
