Anti-pipeline protesters interrupt Dayton's speech at water summit


ST. PAUL -- Anti-pipeline protesters interrupted Gov. Mark Dayton Saturday as he spoke to more than 800 Minnesotans at a summit about how to clean the state's water.

A half dozen people representing environmental and American Indian groups carrying signs saying "Love water, not oil" went up on stage, while others stood in front of Dayton holding a similar banner. They criticized him for supporting oil pipelines across northern Minnesota.

"Why are no tribal groups represented" at the water summit, a man carrying a megaphone asked Dayton.
