Biggest Rally Ever Against Tar Sands in Northeast Converged in Portland
Saturday January 26th, 2013
Portland, Maine – In the largest protest yet in the northeast against tar sands, hundreds of people from across Maine, New England, and from Canada carried signs and marched across Portland to rally at the Maine State Pier.
The rally and march were held to oppose an emerging proposal to send dirty tar sands oil through the 236-mile long, 62-year-old Exxon/Enbridge pipeline across Canada, Maine and New England. Speakers addressed the crowds at the rally on Maine State Pier, against the backdrop of oil tanks and tankers in Casco Bay.
Here are just a few snapshots from the day. You can see more photos of the event on NRCM’s Facebook page. If you have photos to share, please send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
