The protesters appeared prepared for arrest. In an advisory to media on Sept. 16, the group said they planned a sit-in at TransCanada’s U.S. headquarters in Houston in opposition to the Keystone XL pipeline.
“TransCanada is the foreign oil company seeking to build the controversial pipeline through American soil to export tar sands oil overseas,” the protest group said in the advisory. “The sit-in is the third civil disobedience action organized by CREDO, Rainforest Action Network and the Other 98% to maintain pressure on President Obama and the State Department to reject Keystone XL once and for all.”
