Joining together in solidarity with the - thousands of people expected to flood Washington DC (and all around the country) to demand a halt to the construction of Transcanada's Keystone XL Tar Sands Pipeline - the Denver event captured the spirit of beginning days of the Occupy movement. Though sponsored by 350.org, The Sierra Club and the Hip Hop Caucus - the protest was endorsed and publicized by Occupy Denver which helped provide a big turnout. Between 3 and 400 hundred people, most dressed in black, took part, many marching from the Auraria campus up Broadway to Civic Center Park where they participated in an "oil spill - or oil blob". Then the demonstrators gathered in the amphitheater.
