Police arrested two environmental activists arrested this morning who were protesting a methane gas pipeline project in Burrillville, Rhode Island, by chaining themselves to a gate at the project site.

“I’m taking action today because as a parent and being a pediatrician compels me to use any and all nonviolent means to stop this project,” said Nordgaard in a prepared statement.
