Keystone Continued

25 Arrested at Keystone XL Pipeline Protest in Massachusetts

In the latest protest against the Keystone XL oil pipeline, 25 people were arrested after handcuffing themselves together inside a TransCanada office in Westborough, Massachusetts. More than 100 students, mothers and clergy members staged a “funeral for our future,” saying TransCanada’s pipeline would spur devastating climate change, pollution and potential spills.

Protesters: [singing] “They are digging us a hole. They are digging us a hole, six feet underground, where the pipeline will go.”

The Keystone XL pipeline would carry tar sands crude from Canada to Texas. A decision from President Obama on the project is expected soon, after a State Department review found it does not pose a serious threat to the environment. (this is from democracy now)

    I’m not sure what to think. You travel the world via jet and car. This pipeline is for YOU! I do not judge as I use a car daily. Although, I am poor and rarely travel more than 20 miles from home, most days only 2 miles, but still I depend on oil. Honestly, as long as I am a part of the problem, I find it difficult to condemn the pipeline project.
