"Green Groups Slam Keystone Pipeline, March Around White House"

"Hundreds of people who say they worry oil that would be carried the Keystone XL pipeline will accelerate climate change marched around the White House on Sunday, hoping to revive a movement credited with slowing down the permit process for the crude oil project."

"The protesters changed 'Hey, Obama! We don't want no climate drama' and said they hope President Barack Obama's election-night promise to address climate change means he will reject the pipeline. It needs a presidential permit to cross into the United States from Canada.

'We're interested in sending a clear message to Obama,' said Molly Pugh from nearby Alexandria, Virginia, marching with her husband and 2-year-old daughter, who rode in a stroller."
