Keystone protesters disrupt swanky Obama fundraiser

More than one thousand protesters snaked though the mansion-lined streets of San Francisco’s Pacific Heights neighborhood Wednesday evening in an attempt to convince President Barack Obama, in town for a fundraiser at the home of Ann and Gordon Getty, to block the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.

With chants of “hey hey, ho ho, Keystone XL has got to go,” protesters held aloft signs urging the president to stop energy giant TransCanada’s controversial project. “I’m determined to make a difference and stop the Keystone pipeline,” said San Francisco resident Peter Bank, who toted an enormous banner that read “Stop the Keystone Pipeline.” “It’s just a dumb idea all the way.”
