Tens of thousands of protesters descended on Washington DC on Sunday demanding Barack Obama shut down the Keystone XL pipeline project to show he is serious about taking action on climate change.
A crowd that organizers put at 35,000, carrying placards in the shape of bright red stop signs, gathered at the Washington Monument on a bright, bitterly cold day for the march on the White House.
The event, billed as the largest climate protest in US history, was intended as a show of force before Obama renders his decision on the pipeline project in the next few months.
