Maine Group Protests Pipeline 

Protesters against the Keystone XL Pipeline took to the streets in Waterville on Sunday.

The protesters are part of the 350 Central Maine group.

They say there are several reasons as to why the pipeline should be denied.

One reason is that they believe it could create costly, toxic spills in the US.

They hope that their protests will gain people’s attention.

“Well if we can get enough public awareness about the issue and if the politicians hear from enough people then maybe Obama will do the right thing and say no, we’re not going to let the oil come across the border,” said Dick Thomas, a member of 350 Central Maine.

The group will be protesting every Sunday until may first, from 11:30-12:30, outside of the Universalist Unitarian Church of Waterville.
