Thousands protest Keystone pipeline

| No Comments

Environmental activists marched in a crowd numbering around 35,000 on Sunday to protest the proposed Keystone XL pipeline, news sources reported.

The crowd marched past the White House to ask President Barak Obama to reject the creation of this pipeline, which would run from Texas to Canada, in order to slow the climate change, according to the Washington Post.

If approved, the pipeline would carry oil, but protesters ask Obama reject the plan in order to comply with his inaugural agreement to actively prevent climate change, CBS News said.
