Tar Sands protestors storm TD Bank, Valero, 5 arrests 

On the 21st of March, Risin Tide DC backed by Chesapeake Earth First and
area street activists marched from the "Klanadian Embassy" to TD Bank
and Valero, both of them tar sands profiteers.TD Bank is the largest
commercial lender, and Valero Energy the largest committed customer for
the tar sands pipeline.

At TD Bank, activists were able to momentarily get control of the doors
and get a few people inside before cops very aggressively regained
control of the doors and pushed everyone back. This was the second
mission against TD Bank in three days by DC opponents of the Keystone
XL.



After TD Bank, protesters marched on 601 Penn, an upscale office space
rental building where Valero Energy has an office. It has been reported that without Valero-s contract the Keystone XL would not have gotten off the drawing board.
