Keystone XL Pipeline

Nearly 5,000 people are expected to converge in San Francisco Sunday to demand a halt to a proposed oil pipeline. The Keystone XL tar sands pipeline would extend from Alberta, Canada to the the U.S. Gulf Coast.

This is one of several multi-billion dollar pipeline projects in the works. It would carry oil from the land-locked Tar Sands oil field which environmental groups say is a big step in the wrong direction.

The Forward on Climate rally will be held near the U.S. State Department office at One Market Street starting at 1 p.m.
