It's being called the largest act of civil disobedience in the US-environmental movement and it's directed at Alberta.
A two week "sit-in" outside the White House has come to an end Saturday, resulting in the arrests of more than 1200 people. They're calling on the government to quash the construction of an oil pipeline from Alberta to Texas.
They say despite the arrests, they are more demonstrations on the way.
