A police officer tells protesters in front of the White House to disband on Friday September 2, 2011.

Exclusive White House Protest Video

Upwards of 166 people, including indigenous leaders from territories in the United States and Canada, were arrested on Friday September 2 for protesting in front of the White House.

Resistance is growing against the Keystone XL Pipeline, which would cut a 1,700-mile swath from the U.S. Midwest to the Gulf of Mexico carrying dirty crude from the Alberta oil sands in Canada.

"What did you say?" says one protester after the cop states his warning. Then as he walks away, the protesters hoot and cheer.

View the video by ICTMN Washington D.C. Bureau Chief Rob Capriccioso below, then read his coverage of the protest.

Since is it a crime to have a calm and respectful demonstration? I think Washington and those in charge are doing everything they can, to take more and more of those vary rights that this Country was build on! Washington and the White House belongs to the PEOPLE and our FOUNDING FATHERS WOULD ROLL OVER IN THEIR GRAVES, TO SEE WHAT THIS COUNTRY HAS BECOME. Not only have the white mans' rights being destroyed, but also as in the past, the Native Americans are loosing more and more of their ancestral lands thru greed and forceable degradation of their rights and cultures.
