Keystone XL protesters at Dept of State harassed by police for videotaping

On April 1, Fossil Fools Day, two activists from Climate First! staged the first of what will be an ongoing, 7 days a week protest in front of the US Dept of State against the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline. They witnessed police harassing an injured cyclist, and in response security guards claimed falsely that they could not shoot video of them-and that they needed a permit to protest on the sidewalk, which DC law does NOT require.
