If the police thought jail would deter participants, they were absolutely wrong. Joy and resolve: #noKXL

If the police thought jail would deter participants, they were absolutely wrong. Joy and resolve: #noKXL

This morning, while 50 of their friends faced another day in jail, 45 more Americans were arrested as part of an ongoing sit-in at the White House this morning. The DC Park Police have been telling organizers of the sit-in that they were keeping the first wave of demonstrators in jail in order to deter people from taking part in the civil disobedience. In fact, the arrests have just the opposite affect. “Saturday’s arrests and overnight jailings are already lighting a fire,” said Mike Tidwell, director of the Chesapeake Climate Action Network, who was arrested Saturday. “More people are now inspired, determined, and committed to join. On Monday alone over 20 DC-area doctors, lawyers and students will be going to jail to chant, sing, and stop the pipeline. They’ll be joining Nebraska ranchers and others nationwide. Word is spreading.”
