A group of protesters are still waiting for answers after their demonstration at an Alexandria fundraising event made Governor Tim Walz cut a speech short and leave early. On Saturday, the governor was giving a speech when dozens of Line Three activists confronted him about a controversial pipeline project. Video captured the group chanting, shouting and asking the governor questions about the project before he left the scene with security mid-speech. The group wants an end to the pipeline, saying it violates existing treaties with indigenous groups and it could negatively impact the state’s wetlands and wild rice beds.
