"Protests Grow Over Proposed Pipeline Through Massachusetts"

"There are the signs. Stop the Pipeline. Protect our Common Wealth. No Fracked Gas in Mass. And there are the meetings.

Boards of selectmen hosting informational sessions. Residents packing town halls and school auditoriums to learn about a proposed natural gas pipeline that would cross the state’s northern hem, starting at the New York border and passing through thinly populated rural areas, conservation land — and their backyards.

There are the local votes against the pipeline, and a rolling protest rally moving in stages across the state. And there is outrage."
