Keystone XL protest, SF Federal Building, Feb. 5, 2014

Police arrested 28 environmental activists blockading San Francisco’s Federal Building Wednesday. The group was protesting the proposed Keystone XL pipeline on the first day of public comment related to the State Department’s final environmental report on the project.

The barricade lasted for just over an hour, preventing dozens of employees from entering. One frustrated woman attempted to wrestle through the line, yelling “Get out of my way,” but was unable to break through.
