Dozens rally downtown to protest Keystone and Dakota Access pipeline

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Saturday dozens of people rallied in Louisville to speak out against the Keystone and Dakota Access pipeline.

Holding signs that read "Water is Life" and chanting, protesters met at Jefferson Square Park in response to President Trump's executive order to clear the way for the pipeline.

The Dakota Access Pipeline is a $3.7 billion project.

Those against the pipeline say it poses a major threat to the environment and it all comes down to one thing.

"This isn't just an administration issue because, you know, politics aside, this is an environmental issue and no matter who was president money is unfortunately more important than the environment," Julia Adams said.

The protesters also claim the pipeline is a violation of international human rights laws.
