09 August 2010 - USA. Greenpeace activists and students hold a protest with the U.S. Capitol as a backdrop in Washington, D.C. The activists have smeared their hands with oil and are displaying a banner which reads ' Congress: You've got oil on your hands'.
They are calling on Congress to come clean, get rid of campaign contributions from dirty energy, and to stop subsidizing oil and coal. Instead energy policies should be put in place, which put money into creating clean energy and green jobs.
