Activists in Richmond, CA: 'If you breathe air and drink water, then this is your fight'

On Monday July 24, six protesters sat in front of three different entrances to the Kinder Morgan Terminal in Richmond, California to halt business as usual at the oil storage facility. They came to protest the planned construction of a 600-mile pipeline extension, which they said could have an even greater environmental impact than the Keystone XL pipeline.
