Mayflower, AR - Environmental activists from across the country are converging upon Arkansas, arguing the Mayflower spill proves that the controversial Keystone Pipeline proposal should not move forward.

The group, called "Tar Sands Blockade", is from Texas, where much of the Keystone project would be built, saying the type of oil involved is too dirty and too risky to move.

"This is going to be an ongoing cleanup process and it's gonna be an ongoing grieving process and dealing with the losses and the health problems and all the terrible damage caused by Exxon's negligence," explained Eric Moll with the group.

They say "Tar Sands Blockade" wants to spread their message against future pipelines so they say they can keep spills like this from happening anywhere else.

The group has well-documented their trip so far. To have a look click here for their website.
