Dozens of protesters urging President Obama to reject the Keystone XL Pipeline were arrested outside of the White House on Sunday, Reuters reported.

About 1,000 people who were mostly college-aged took part in the protest. Some tied themselves to the White House fence with plastic ties, and others acted out an oil spill on Pennsylvania Avenue.

Organizers told Reuters that they wanted to remind Obama that young people make up a key voting block in the U.S. and that they want to halt environmentla damage.
