Tar sands protests day 5: Gulf Coast residents speak out

On August 24, the 5th day in a row of civil disobediance protests in front of the White House, 56 more people were arrested protesting the Keystone XL tar sands oil pipeline.
A resident of Missisippi, one of several Gulf Coast residents to show up on the 24th, showed off "tar logs" essentially giant BP tarball that had washed up on a Missisippi beach. He explains how BP's oil spill made his house smell like varsol or kerosene and made him seriously ill.
Meanwhile, a sign in the protest promised "shovel-ready jobs fro gravediggers" based on the Gulf Coast experience, and the more recent Montana spill of tar sands oil from an Exxon pipeline.
