Add comment on:"No XL Pipeline" Protest Near Obama Fundraiser on the Peninsula
President Obama is expected to make a decision by early summer about whether to approve the Keystone XL pipeline. He refused to approve it in 2012, but may not refuse again. The controversial pipeline has sparked strong opposition across the country, with major rallies and peaceful demonstrations in Washington, DC, San Francisco, and many other cities. On April 4 a rally was held to influence President Obama to refuse to approve the pipeline, which would bring crude oil from tar sands in Canada down to oil refineries on the Gulf coast. About 100 people gathered near an Obama fundraising breakfast held in the San Francisco Peninsula city of Atherton.
