Jane Arrested at the White House Tar Sands Protest (photo by @josh_nelson)

Jane posts the following, Dateline Jail:

Central Booking, Washington DC -  The President promised in 2008 that when he was elected the earth would begin to heal.  Instead, he allowed 65 environmentalists to be arrested and held for two days on a charge that’s equivalent to a traffic ticket, in order to deter others from following our example.

I hope that people across the country will see through their ploy and be inspired by how many of us have backed up our beliefs with our bodies. People from all over the United States and Canada are on their way here right now to join us. Take a stand for what you believe in!  Come join the Tar Sands Action!

Jane wants everyone to know she is in good spirits, and will be fine. Her one concern was making sure her dogs were tended to and her friends are stepping up.

Sounds like Bill McKibben, Lt. Dan Choi, Scarecrow and all the other people arrested this morning are also weekend guests of the District.

McKibben and the Tar Sands Action Committee spent months organizing the two week sit-in that began this morning.  Many of you followed Jane’s livestreaming of the happening this morning.

Here’s how you, too, can
Step Up, Speak Out, and Stop the Tar Sands Keystone XL pipeline.
