Hundreds arrested in Keystone pipeline protests outside White House

Police arrested nearly 400 student-led demonstrators who marched to the White House on Sunday to protest against the Keystone XL pipeline.  
Marching under the name XL Dissent, at least 500 students from across the United States demonstrated and carried out acts of civil disobedience outside of the White House.
After repeated warnings, police arrested demonstrators for “blocking passage” of sidewalks, Sgt. Lelani Woods of the U.S. Park Police told Al Jazeera. “We advised protesters of the outcome of the warnings, which would be an arrest. They decided to remain on the sidewalk, so the arrest process began,” Woods said.
