"Ottawa Sit-in To Protest Federal Support of Oilsands"

"EDMONTON -- Environmental groups are hoping to trigger what they call the "largest civil disobedience action in the history of Canada’s climate movement"Monday in Ottawa — a sit-in on Parliament Hill to protest federal government support of Alberta's oilsands."

"'This isn’t about condemning anybody that works in the tarsands or oilsands industry. This is about presenting choices,' said Greenpeace campaigner Mike Hudema.

The Edmonton-based activist, who plans to be in Ottawa on Monday, said he hopes people do not see the protest as an attack on Alberta, but as a bid for a 'clean-energy economy.'"
