PPro, with your help, was able to support twelve Princeton students, members of Princeton United Left, who were among the more than a thousand students protesting on 2 March against President Obama’s failure so far to carry through on his promises to make environmental concerns determine his final decision on approving or disapproving the proposed Keystone XL pipeline. This protest involved an act of peaceful civil disobedience at the White House fence and gate, for which 398 students (including nine Princetonians) were arrested and released after paying fines.
Participating Princeton students were:
Courtney Reyes Perales
