Topeka activists join in nationwide pipeline protest

A national campaign to protest the construction of the Keystone X-L Pipeline brought out activists in Topeka Monday night.

Members of the group Move-On Topeka organized the event.

Protesters gathered near the Kansas Expocentre near downtown to express their opposition to the project.

Organizers say it is a huge source of carbon pollution and clearly fails the climate test set forth by the Obama administration.

The proposed $7 million project would run more than one-thousand miles from Canada through The United State and Mexico.

Topeka was one of more than 250 protest sites nationwide.
