Five Years Later, Michigan Remembers Enbridge's Assault on Kalamazoo River

Jon Queally, staff writer

Hundreds of climate activists and local residents marched in the town of Battle Creek, Michigan on Saturday to mark five years since the rupture of a tar sands oil pipeline operated by the Canada-based Enbridge corporation dumped more than one million gallons of crude into the Kalamazoo River and other waterways – the largest inland oil spill in U.S. history.

In the march that alternated between silence and solemn refrains of chants and songs, those who walked carried banners that read: "We Remember the Kalamazoo" and "Stop the Enbridge Pipeline Invasion."
