Steve Kretzman 'We won the Keystone XL campaign because of nonviolent protest' - The Ecologist

President Obama's decision was a big win for our movement for sure. It has been a brutal couple of years to be campaigning for the environment, particularly in the U.S. As one activist said to me last week: "I feel like I can finally get out of the fetal position I've been in since Copenhagen". The best thing about the decision is that we won it not because of clever policy or inside deals but because 12,000 of us surrounded the White House, more than 1200 got arrested in nonviolent civil disobedience, and millions more around the U.S. supported us. That's movement building and its empowering and it's something we haven't seen at scale in the U.S. in entirely too long.
