Dozens of protestors linked arms, barring the doors of TransCanada's lobbying firm Monday morning to protest in solidarity with the Tar Sands Blockade.
The crowd gathered outside the Washington D.C. offices chanting "No pipeline! No tar sands! No destruction of indigenous lands!"
According to the Tar Sands Blockade blog, "police were quick to arrive at the scene and arrested several protestors."
Below is a video of the protest, filmed by Occupy Eye.
