Fifty-one environmental activists turned out February 3rd for the Keystone XL Resistance Vigil at the state Capitol. It was a great event! Great Plains Tar Sands resistance and Idle No More of Central Oklahoma were well represented, although Sierra Club leaders like Jody Gross and Mary Francis were also there. Thanks to Stefan Warner for setting up and leading the event.
