US: Protesters Rally Against Rebuilding Oil Pipeline in Minnesota

TEHRAN (FNA)- Hundreds of environmental and tribal groups gathered near LaSalle Lake in Solway before marching to Park Rapids on Monday calling to halt the reconstruction of an oil pipeline. The protesters attempted to occupy the area where the pipeline was being rebuilt, which would carry Canadian tar sands oil and regular crude oil from Canada's province of Alberta to Wisconsin. Some protesters reportedly chained themselves to construction equipment before police intervened to arrest around 30 of them. [VIDEO]
