Local Students Glue & Chain Themselves Together in TransCanada Office to Protest Keystone XL Pipeline

A group of eight area college students met at TransCanada’s offices in Westborough, Mass. on Monday, staging a sit-in to protest the proposed Keystone XL pipeline—designed to transport tar sands oil from Canada to refineries in Texas. The protest was held in solidarity with Tar Sands Blockade, a group of environmental activists who helped coordinate similar, simultaneous demonstrations in Texas and Wisconsin.

The students stormed TransCanada around 2 p.m. yesterday, according to the The Phoenix. After marching up to the company’s third floor office, the group sat down in a circle with their backs to each other and banded themselves together using chains, locks and superglue “in an act of nonviolent disobedience.”

By 5:45 p.m., the group of activists had been removed from the TransCanada offices and escorted to the Westborough Police Station still chained together with only one or two chains broken by the authorities, according to The Phoenix. Although the charges are still unclear, the group has set up a page on their site asking for help and bail money.

Yesterday, a group of protestors stormed the TransCanada offices in Houston, Tx, chaining their ankles, and for added measure, apparently supergluing their hands together. A statement from the group said that they were “representatives of a desperate generation who have been forced into this position by the reckless and immoral behavior of fossil fuel corporations such as Transcanada.” Bill McKibben’s 350.org is organizing a much larger-scale protest for Washington, D.C., and the White House next month.

Did they drive their Unicorn powered green-mobile or did they use fossil fuels to get to the protest?


"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."
