Actress Rosario Dawson, protesting the Keystone pipeline, warned that "radioactive materials" were "trickling down" to the American people.

MRCTV's Joe Schoffstall caught up with actress Rosario Dawson yesterday at the Washington, DC rally against the Keystone XL pipeline.

Dawson said, "This pipeline is not for the benefit of the American people."

"[M]ost of that money isn't trickling down to anybody," she said. "What is trickling down to us is leakages, spills, bad health, um, contaminated water, contaminated air, radioactive materials, property values dropping, our health. That's what's being trickled down to us, and we have to say 'no' to that."


"We don't see these problems when there's a hemp oil spill, you know, we don't suddenly hear about all these birds and animals, and like, radioactivity and all these things happening," she said. "It's not a problem, so that's the energy that we need to be pushing forwards."
