Syncrude Protest

Advertisement

A small group of Greenpeace activists has broken into a Syncrude Canada operation in Northeastern Alberta to protest oilsands development.

The protesters say they have blocked a pipe that flows into the same waste pond where 500 ducks died in April. Greenpeace spokesman David Martin says they have also unfurled a banner that reads, "World’s Dirtiest Oil: Stop the Tar Sands".

Syncrude officials so far have not commented on the protest.
