'Yes We Can, Stop The Pipeline'

'Yes We Can, Stop The Pipeline'
(actually REPORTED by the Republican-leaning AP)
Thousands of protesters opposing a controversial oil pipeline project rallied around the White House on Sunday. Canadian company TransCanada is seeking permission to build the 1,600-mile Keystone XL pipeline from Alberta to the Gulf Coast in Texas. Environmental groups say that extracting oil from the sands would generate huge greenhouse gas emissions, and that any accident on the route could be disastrous.

Protesters shouted "yes we can, stop the pipeline," the AP reports, and some carried an inflatable oil pipeline.
