Passions boil over during Texas pipeline protests
NACOGDOCHES COUNTY, Texas -- Fifty feet up, in the canopy of the famous Piney Woods of east Texas, three more activists took to the trees yesterday to protest the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. To the protesters here, the latest effort is meant to show they are willing to fight against the southern leg of Keystone XL to the bitter end. Spokeswoman Kim Huynh, a 25-year-old who had been working for Friends of the Earth before the protests began, said TransCanada can expect similar treatment as pipeline construction crosses into other mountain West and Midwestern states.
