If These 28 Amazing Photos Don't Convince President Obama To Reject Keystone XL, There's 254 More He Can Look At

More than 10,000 activists took to the streets around the country on Monday evening to urge President Obama to reject the Keystone XL pipeline. These protest vigils were a response to the release on Friday of the State Department’s final environmental report, which – while seriously flawed – still couldn’t deny the pipeline's climate impact. In just 72 hours, activists across the country organized 283 events in 49 states, plus DC and Canada. Here are photos from just 1/10th of them.
